Health Policy Track Taking Shape in Public Policy Minor

With the addition of two new courses, the Health Policy track within the Public Policy Minor at the Rockefeller Center is a great opportunity for Dartmouth students.  We now have multi-year commitments from two Dartmouth faculty members to teach health policy classes annually.  Professor H. Gilbert Welch, professor of medicine and community and family medicine at Dartmouth Medical School, is also affiliated with The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice.  A trained medical doctor, Professor Welch also holds a master’s degree in public health (MPH).  During the Spring 2010 term, Welch offered for the first time PDF iconPBPL 26: Health Policy and Clinical Practice (PDF).  Seventy students enrolled in the class; student responses to the course were overwhelmingly positive.  Professor Welch will continue to offer PBPL 26 during the spring term at the 10 hour.
