Application for admission to the PhD Program in Health Policy is made through the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS). Please visit the GSAS website for additional information on the process and a link to the online application. 

All applicants must apply to a specific concentration of the program and must indicate this choice in their statement of purpose. Up to two concentration areas may be specified. 

Applications are reviewed by both faculty from the relevant concentration and a general admissions committee, which is comprised of faculty from multiple concentrations. Applications are due by 5pm (Boston time) on December 15. Applicants will be notified of admissions results by mid-March.

We will be holding a Virtual Admissions Information Session on October 27, 2022 at noon.
