Students are challenged to push the boundaries, ask questions, and find innovative solutions – just like our pioneering faculty has done for over 30 years.

We lead the nation in exploring the causes and consequences of unwarranted variations in practice and spending — and in developing policy approaches to address them. These approaches range from patient shared decision-making to accountable care. We introduced the game-changing idea that more health care is not necessarily better care, and we are proud of graduating informed agents of change.

If you're ready to have the greatest impact on how health care systems are constructed and how people and populations receive care, The Dartmouth Institute is the place for you.

Distinctive Curriculum
Core coursework in the online MPH program focuses on the development of essential quantitative and analytic skills, foundational knowledge about how health care systems function (or malfunction) and how they can work better. In short, students gain the knowledge and training they need to fix health system performance through quality improvement, leadership, health policy and research.

At The Dartmouth Institute, you will learn to:
• Harness data to inform decisions, developing new measures if needed
• Recognize that health care is one of many determinants of health
• Empower patients and their providers through shared decision making
• Facilitate public understanding of health information
• Evaluate the potential harms and benefits of therapies and surgeries
• Change our system of health care delivery
• Improve quality in health care
• Sharpen your powers of healthy skepticism
