Department of Population Health

Our multidisciplinary faculty and staff work to improve the health of populations locally and globally.

NYU Langone Health’s Department of Population Health is one of the first departments of population health to be launched at an academic medical center. We are a diverse group of faculty and staff working on pressing challenges in New York City and around the world. Our twin goals are to improve health for all while simultaneously reducing health inequities.

In our research, we develop and test real-world solutions in partnership with healthcare systems, communities, policymakers, and other groups to continuously advance the field of population health, uniting the expertise of researchers from disciplines across NYU Langone.

Through training programs for medical and other graduate students, postgraduate students, and health professionals, we educate future leaders in population health.

The Department of Population Health seeks to bridge the divide of medicine and public health to reunite the knowledge and expertise of both fields and improve the health of populations.
