PBH 312 - Public Health Policy and Administration


4 Hour(s)
This course is about making public policy in public health and in health care: what it is, who makes it, and how and when it is made successfully. The course aims (1) to highlight several selected critical public policy issues and (2) to build skills in critical, reflective thinking that will help the student in making decisions about, or advocating for, policies that reflect individual and societal values. In the study of public policy, there are two broad theoretical models for explaining the policy making process. One is the rational model that emphasizes economic analysis and rational decision making. The other model is based in political science. This course is built on the political science model and emphasizes the political context in which public policy is always developed.
