The Department of Population Health Sciences first launched as a center in February 2016, was designated as a School of Medicine department July 1, 2017, and now houses a multi-disciplinary team of 48 primary faculty from the fields of epidemiology, health services research and policy, health economics, health measurement and behavior, and implementation science, and 50 secondary faculty. The department works where biology, behavior, environments, society, and health care intersect using tools of discovery, measurement, evaluation, and implementation to generate insights that affect health. In addition to research, the department houses a MS and PhD program as well as several cores that collaborate with other groups to provide expertise in qualitative research, bioethics, implementation science, health measurement, and access to electronic health data.
