The program requires a capstone and a dissertation. What's involved with each of those? Led by faculty from Harris, the capstone project is an intensive experiential learning initiative in which teams of students will work under faculty supervision to resolve actual health policy challenges. The dissertation can be on any topic in the field of health policy and economics. It should attempt to integrate approaches and knowledge learned across courses and present results to address a health policy, economic issue or a problem identified through the use of either primary or secondary data.
