The Masters of Public Health in Health Policy and Management at Kent State University Department of Health Policy and Management trains students to address public health risks and develop effective health services delivery models.
It is an interdisciplinary program that incorporates health services research, health policy analysis, and health care planning and management.
Given the active research of the College’s faculty in identifying service gaps and in developing evidence-based practices and policy analysis, students will emerge with strong skills in health care organization management, alternative models of service financing, and strategies for improving services.
The course prepares the participants for the world of procurement and supply chain of healthcare products. It provides a solid overview of PSM issues including the role of government policies, donors, manufacturers, procurement agents and more. The course is targeted at health professionals in public health programs (donors, government, NGOs, civil society, academia) and people interested in working in supply chain / logistics.
