Mission and Vision

Our Division of Health Systems Science fosters a collaborative research, education, and training environment that produces impactful healthcare delivery innovations to continuously improve population health, healthcare value, and the patient-provider experience. 

We seek to partner with learning health systems in the discovery, evaluation, and implementation of innovations that equitably improve healthcare delivery and health.

Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:

The Division of Health Systems Science is committed to providing a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for our faculty and staff. We are staunchly opposed to discrimination and racism in all forms.

As a division, we seek to identify, recruit, and support faculty and staff from diverse and historically underrepresented backgrounds. We strive to provide a community that is welcoming to all, and that encourages learning, mutual respect, and collaboration. We seek to foster a dynamic environment where research, education, and clinical care flourish, and are informed by our commitment to diversity and inclusiveness. The division actively participates in and supports other departments and community initiatives to foster an inclusive environment.
