Non-Degree Training

HPM Academic Institutes

The Department encourages all students to take advantage of the many educational opportunities offered throughout the Johns Hopkins University. Many opportunities are available for formal and informal coursework in non-traditional formats.

The Department offers graduate courses in Institutes throughout the academic year, specifically in the January intersession (Winter Institute), in the June session (Summer Institute) and during 2nd term, in Barcelona Spain (Fall Institute).

Institutes are opportunities for students to take courses in compressed formats, from 1 to 4 days, over a 1 to 3 week period.  Courses taken for academic credit may be applied to degree programs at the School of Public Health and to the appropriate certificate programs. Other Departments, Programs and Centers within the Bloomberg School offer additional Institutes. For the most up to date information, consult the School of Public Health Institutes web page.

Note: Due to the timing of the courses offered in Barcelona during the 2nd academic term, full-time departmental students are discouraged from participating in the Barcelona Institute offerings during the first year of their program. Instructors of East-Baltimore courses may make special accommodations to those students who miss classes to travel to Spain, but it is not required and  is not feasible in some circumstances.

Executive Education

The Department of Health Policy and Management sponsors a continuing education program for health care executives,  Leading Transformation for Value-Based Health Care (LTVH).

LTVH is a multidisciplinary 6-month program that combines short in-person collaborative sessions and web-based seminars to deliver the comprehensive education developing leaders need to thrive in the current healthcare environment.  LTVH sessions run each year from January to June.
