Program Description

The Master of Science in Health Outcomes is a 30 credit, fully online degree program that offers two tracks, pharmacoeconomics or health outcomes research. Health economics and outcomes research is increasingly important to the health care industry and aims to optimize patient care delivery and clinical decision-making as well as influence policy discussions related to health care reimbursements and priorities.

This degree program will prepare students for careers in health care administration, medical affairs, market access and research and will provide graduates with concrete skills and competencies that make them competitive for jobs in diverse public and private health systems, the pharmaceutical industry, health insurance companies, government and academia.

Students will take courses covering topics including biostatistics, epidemiology, qualitative and quantitative research methods, health economics and health care delivery systems. Students will also complete a capstone project, either as non-thesis or thesis option that ties together curricular outcomes from the entire program.
