The School of Health Policy and Management offers a broad perspective and teaches about all aspects of the health care system as well as about other factors, such as wealth and ethnicity, that influence the health of Canadians. Learning takes place not only in classroom settings but also through field placements. The faculty in the school are internationally recognized for their research and teaching.

Health care represents a major expenditure in terms of our federal and provincial budgets. However, many in the health care field propose that massive spending in infrastructure and reactive forms of health care delivery may not be the most effective use of limited resources nor the most efficient approach to promoting the health of Canadians.

The School of Health Policy and Management also offers an Honours program in Health Studies and Specialized Honours BHS degrees and Honours Minor programs in Health Informatics and Health Management. Additionally, the school offers a Cross-Disciplinary Undergraduate Certificate in Health Informatics.
