The Center for Health Care Management and Policy    

Message from the Director

Welcome to the Center for Health Care Management and Policy at The Paul Merage School of Business. I encourage you to discover how the Center is playing a crucial role in the future provision of health care in the United States. With our prestigious faculty and world-class scholars, our policy-oriented faculty research focuses on key issues in the health care industry today, such as:


  • economics and health care reform;
  • the politics of health legislation;
  • competition and consumer behavior in the health insurance market; and
  • the impact on the health care industry of changing leadership on the national, state, and local scenes.

A tremendous opportunity exists for those who choose to be a part of the Center and its research. Involvement with the Center is one of the best ways to affect positive change to health care issues now and in the future. I know you will find participation with us to be stimulating and informative. Please join us as we discuss the changing face of health care and how we can make an impact in this vital discussion.
