Welcome from Our Chair

Hello and Welcome to the Department of Health Services Administration!

As the second chair of the Department of Health Services Administration, I am focusing on growing our department by recruiting more faculty and students, and by expanding degree program offerings.

Our mission is to focus on health sevices delivery systems to address a multitude of issues. Namely, health care systems, health care delivery and management, health services policy, disparities in access to care, long term care, chronic disease and disability care, and financing and economics in public health services delivery.

We envision that health services research will improve our health system and its functionality to achieve the best in human health outcomes.

We look forward to collaborating with other departments and schools on both the College Park and Baltimore campuses whose faculty members are engaged in research focused on improving healthcare policy, access, delivery and costs.
