Overview

Many global healthcare systems are broken and lack the fundamental components of a system making them costly with poor outcomes. In order to address these challenges and create a sustainable healthcare delivery system that focuses on quality, safety, equity, effectiveness and cost, the next generation of healthcare leaders must be able to know and apply the principles of Population Health.

This course will cover the foundations of population health and lifestyle medicine, define the essential components, and make the argument for why healthcare delivery models based on these foundational principles are essential to addressing global healthcare crises. Given the current employer-based health insurance system, the business case for addressing workforce health will also be made.
