The Graduate Program in Population Health prepares students to investigate multiple determinants of health and the functioning of the health care system. It draws on medical and social sciences, including health economics, econometrics, psychometrics, epidemiology and biostatistics in an interdisciplinary manner to build strong methodological skills in study design and data analysis. The research typically uses large data sets such as electronic health and Medicare records, or population surveys conducted by the researchers. UW–Madison Population Health faculty are based in many departments, and evaluate comparative effectiveness of therapies, patient reported outcomes, quality of health care, health disparities and access to care, and economic and health impacts of insurance. Clinical settings and social sciences play important roles in this research.
