Welcome to the Department of Health Services Management. Our department is comprised of faculty members with nationally and internationally recognized expertise in health care administration, public health management, health services research, and health policy. Our mission is, “To improve the organization and delivery of personal and public health services in Kentucky and beyond through education, health services research, and service,” as described in more detail below.

Education. The health care field comprises a substantial portion of the U.S. economy, thus creating abundant employment opportunities in health care management and health policy.

The Master’s in Health Administration (MHA) degree program prepares graduates for managerial positions in health systems, hospitals, clinics, and health insurance organizations.

The Master’s of Public Health (MPH) with a concentration in health services management prepares graduates for managerial positions in federal, state, or large local public health departments as well as leadership roles in health policy.

The Doctorate in Public Health (DrPH) with a concentration in health services management gives students advanced management, policy, and data analysis skills to prepare them for more senior level management and policy positions in public health agencies.

Undergraduate-level courses in population health introduce UK students to health care management, public health preparedness, and the U.S. health care structure and policy.

Research. By conducting original research on contemporary health services delivery, management, and policy issues, our faculty members bring to the classroom cutting-edge knowledge and experience. Underscoring the relevance and rigor of their research, our faculty members have received highly competitive funding from the NIH, CDC, AHRQ, and RWJF. Our research strengths include:

Health services research: A major focus of our department is investigating how health care services are organized, financed, and delivered in an effort to improve the accessibility, quality, and costs of care.

Health care management and health information technology: Several faculty members study how to better structure and manage health care services in hospital as well as ambulatory care settings.

Public health systems research: Our department houses the RWJF-funded Public Health Practice-Based Research Program and National Coordinating Center for Public Health Services and Systems Research.

Rural health: Members of our faculty study rural/urban disparities in health and health services access and quality and our department houses the editorial office of The Journal of Rural Health.

Service. Our faculty not only conducts research that culminates in publications in prestigious academic journals, but also translates those findings by providing expert advice and testimony to state, regional, national, and international decision-makers. Some examples of our faculty’s recent professional activities include: consultation on the development of Kentucky’s health insurance exchange, service on national committees on public health system financing, and presentations on global public health.

Thank you for visiting our website and we welcome you to further explore the opportunities that we offer for educational advancement, research collaborations, and service to health care leaders and policy-makers.
