1 1 ITEM NUMBER: PhD in Health Services Research and Policy Degree Proposal (CIP: ) PURPOSE OF THE DEGREE: The purpose of the PhD program in Health Services Research and Policy is to prepare graduates to be practitioner-scholars, educators, researchers, and leaders in higher education, health care and service organizations, health care consulting firms, government and nonprofit organizations, and private businesses that support or regulate the health service industry. BRIEF NARRATIVE: Health care systems in the US and other nations are under extreme pressure. Costs are rising, quality and outcomes are not optimal, many vulnerable groups have inadequate access to care and services, and programs and technologies are often poorly implemented. There is a need for doctoral degree-prepared researchers, executives and policy analysts who will research and assist with problem-solving myriad endemic problems in the US health system and provide leadership and analytic support to state and federal policy- making entities working on health reform. George Mason s proposed doctoral program in Health Services Research and Policy is a 72- credit hour program of study (42 credits post-masters) comprised of two concentrations: 1) Health Systems and Policy; and 2) Knowledge Discovery and Health Informatics). The curriculum consists of core and concentration elective courses in three domains and a dissertation course sequence. All students (regardless of concentration) take core and elective courses in each domain: Research and Computational Methods Domain: 18 credits total (9 core course credits and 9 elective course credits); Knowledge Discovery and Health Informatics Domain: credits total (12 core course credits and 18 elective course credits); Health Systems and Policy Domain: credits total (12 core course credits and 18 elective course credits); Dissertation Sequence Courses: 12 dissertation course credits. The program provides a multidisciplinary examination of the social, political, and economic forces that affect the organization, financing and delivery of health care services and prepares graduates with the following competencies: Ability to understand, analyze, design, execute, and evaluate research and practice in the health system and health sciences, with particular in-depth understanding in the individual s area of specialization; Ability to understand, analyze, and evaluate a wide range of data and data systems from a variety of sources related to individuals, populations, health systems and insurance entities, health care providers and government systems;

2 2 Ability to understand, analyze and evaluate the economic impact of health care delivery under a variety of financing arrangements; Selectively apply a variety of research designs and methods to health services research problems and projects; Ability to translate and synthesize research knowledge with socio-economic, political and management trends as they impact and/or have implications for health policy development/evaluation, improving the performance of health systems and health service providers, optimize population health, improve access and/or improve health care outcomes; Ability to continually examine current and future changes in the health system from an interdisciplinary and socio-cultural perspective; Demonstrated knowledge and understanding of ethical issues and socio-cultural diversity as they relate to health services research and management, health policy, and population health. ADMISSION CRITERIA: Candidates must have at least a bachelor s degree from an accredited program in a field relevant to Health Services Research and Policy. Applicants will be admitted competitively based upon: 1. Evaluation of transcripts from all graduate and undergraduate programs; 2. Review of the individual s curriculum vitae (including an up-to-date employment history, list of publications, awards, grants (submitted and received); 3. Evaluation of a 750-1,000 word written statement of academic goals (describes the applicant s research area of interest for advanced study in health services research and policy and post-graduation goals); 4. GRE, GMAT or LSAT scores (must have been earned within the past five years); 5. Two letters of recommendation: One recommendation should come from a person acquainted with the individual s knowledge and work experience and one recommendation should come from an individual qualified to attest to the candidate's academic potential. REVENUE IMPLICATIONS: The program at launch takes advantage of the current faculty in the Department of Health Administration and Policy as well as the existing departments and courses across the College of of Health and Human Services. Given student demand for the program, we expect the program to be revenue enhancing within four years of start-up.

3 3 Program of Study Program Requirements The PhD in Health Services Research and Policy is a 72-credit academic program with two subspecialized programs of study, called concentrations: Health Systems and Policy and Knowledge Discovery and Health Informatics.

All students, regardless of concentration take core courses in each domain. Elective courses are taken as required by the concentration: Research and Computational Methods Domain: 18 credits (9 Core course credits and 9 elective course credits (all students); Knowledge Discovery and Health Informatics Domain: 12 credits from core courses (all students) and 18 credits from elective courses (students in the concentration); Health Systems and Policy Domain: 12 credits from core courses (all students) and 18 credits from elective courses (students in the concentration); Dissertation Sequence Courses: 12 credits (all students).
