Health Policy Scholars Program

The Health Policy Scholars Program offers Meharry students in the School of Medicine, School of Dentistry, and School of Graduate Studies & Research, who have educational and research interests in health policy and social science research, the opportunity to participate in coursework, seminars and research activities leading to the completion of a Certificate in Health Policy to be awarded in conjunction with the student's declared academic program degree. Students must maintain a 3.00 GPA in their current academic program.

This program offers Meharry students, as well as external applicants and working healthcare professionals, from various disciplines the opportunity to expand their knowledge of health policy as it relates to health care planning, health care resource allocation, health maintenance, health promotion, health programs and interventions, and strategies specific to minority and underserved communities. Students learn from faculty of multiple specialties from both Meharry Medical College and Vanderbilt University. The program's curriculum spans two years of training and includes an optional supplemental paid externship experience at a national organization.
