The Department of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School is one of the few academic departments nationwide specializing in health policy and located in a medical school. Thus, HCP has the rare ability not only to foster the careers of physicians and social scientists (including economists, sociologists, and statisticians) but also to develop close research ties with clinicians at Harvard-affiliated teaching hospitals.
Founded in 1988, HCP has moved steadily to develop rich research and teaching programs—carrying out research on today’s critical health care policy issues but also guiding those who will help shape tomorrow’s policy decisions. The issues addressed affect all Americans, regardless of age, ethnicity, race, or income.
