Carney, MD, MPH, associate dean for public health and program director. “Students will gain expertise in topics essential to improving the health of patients and populations, including legal issues, economics, management, informatics, and policy, critical to healthcare and public health.”
The Certificate of Graduate Study in Health Care Management and Policy is a collaboration between the Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at UVM, the UVM Graduate College, and UVM Continuing and Distance Education.
