The Population Health Science Scholars Program at NYU Grossman School of Medicine trains scholars to improve healthcare delivery for individuals and to advance population health science. Students graduate prepared for academic careers in health services research and leadership roles in healthcare delivery. The interdisciplinary program is based in the Departments of Population Health, Pediatrics, and Medicine.
The program has two tracks, predoctoral and postdoctoral. In the predoctoral track, students complete a PhD in one of the following programs at NYU Langone’s Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences: biostatistics, epidemiology, or systems and computational biomedicine. In the postdoctoral track, fellows complete NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s MS in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) degree.
It is supported by National Research Services Awards (T32 awards) from the Health Resources and Services Administration and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
