This multi-disciplinary department will be comprised of faculty members from a variety of disciplines, including epidemiology, public health, health services research and policy, bioethics, decision sciences, health economics, behavioral health sciences, implementation science and related disciplines. Faculty will share an interest in answering complex questions about the drivers of health in populations. The department will create synergies and foster collaborations across disciplines in the School of Medicine and broader university. Duke University School of Medicine is among the top medical schools in the country, perennially ranked among the top 10 schools in funding from the National Institutes of Health and in the top 10 schools by U.S. News and World Report.
