Department of Health Policy and Management

Research and Practice


Our Department engages in research such as the opioid epidemic, pharmaceutical drug pricing policies, injury prevention, mental health, gun violence prevention policies, environmental health, patient safety and outcomes research, as well as public health informatics.


Our faculty and students also work directly with practitioners, community based organizations, policy makers, and others on the implementation of health policies grounded in research. Some of our practice and advocacy partners include the Baltimore City Health Department, the Maryland General Assembly, U.S. Congressional Members, federal agencies and cabinet members, and many more.

The Department is also affiliated with the university-wide Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics.
