Department of Population Health Sciences

Created in 2016, the Center for Population Health Sciences at Duke officially became a department on July 1, 2017. This new department seeks to bring together faculty and staff from across the School of Medicine and University to study and identify determinants of health and the most effective means for improving health. 

This multidisciplinary, collaborative department is working to engage faculty members from a variety of disciplines including epidemiology, health services research and policy, health economics, health measurement and behavior, and implementation science who share an interest in answering complex questions about the drivers of health in populations.

The department will include signature research initiatives in health services research, implementation science, and measurement science and educational offerings including a post-graduate certificate program in Population Health Sciences and Master and PhD programs in Population Health Sciences.
