Jefferson School of
The Jefferson School of Population Health (JSPH), established in 2008, is one of six schools and colleges that constitute Thomas Jefferson University, a leading academic health center founded in Philadelphia in 1824 as Jefferson Medical College.
As the first designated School of Population Health in the country, we are dedicated to the exploration of policies and forces that determine the health and quality of life of populations, locally, nationally, and globally.
Accordingly, our mission is to prepare leaders with global vision to develop, implement, and evaluate health policies and systems that improve the health of populations and thereby enhance the quality of life.
We do this by providing exemplary graduate academic programming in public health, population health sciences, health policy, healthcare quality and safety, and applied health economics and outcomes research. This academic programming is enhanced by sustained research and publications, and by a robust professional development in these areas.
