The Health Metrics and Evaluation curriculum develops competencies in the following areas: population health measurement, statistical methods and analytical techniques related to global health measurement, evaluation studies, programming in statistical packages, program/survey design and evaluation. Coursework is highly interdisciplinary, and faculty and courses come from across campus with a concentration of resources from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.
The HME Track is designed for individuals who intend to pursue careers at the national and international level in quantitative research, methods and modeling development, survey design and analysis, health system and program evaluation, policy analysis, or academia. Students from this track seek employment opportunities with governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations, non-profits, research institutions and academic centers.
Is this the best track for me?
Competitive applicants may be recent college graduates, and must have strong quantitative skills as demonstrated through undergraduate courses or research. Although it is expected that most applicants to this track will have had some experience in low-resource settings, substantial low/middle-income country work experience is not an entry requirement.
