The health care service delivery landscape is rapidly transforming, and new competencies are required for clinicians to effectively navigate and succeed in this every changing health delivery environment.  Health systems across the nation are confronting the realities of rising costs, inefficiencies in systems and poor health outcomes.  Population health is a broad approach that can be used to respond to these challenges, and aims at addressing disease and injury prevention with approaches that engage communities and populations through integration of public health and clinical practices. 

The Population Health Certificate prepares individuals with the skills to examine and respond to the challenges and opportunities to improve health within and across populations. The Graduate Population Health Certificate provides a comprehensive foundation in the essentials of delivering effective population health across the continuum of care. There is increasing demand for health professionals that can navigate the ever changing and complex healthcare landscape. This program is structured to guide health care professionals, or health professions students seeking to transform or create sustainable models of care from a population health perspective.
