Health Policy Courses

Health Policy Courses


The Duke-Margolis Center fosters collaborations to increase innovative, interdisciplinary education and training opportunities offered in health policy across schools and departments. The Center supports the development and revision of curriculum across campus on health and health care, health policy-making and reform, and the capabilities and infrastructure needed for high-value health care.

We pursue a health policy curriculum that integrates foundational, investigative, and experiential learning opportunities beyond the classroom through faculty and departmental partnerships with the interdisciplinary Bass Connections Program.
