Center for Health Administration Studies (CHAS)

The Center for Health Administration Studies (CHAS) focuses on health services and health policy research with a particular emphasis on policy and services for disadvantaged and vulnerable populations. The Center focuses on interdisciplinary and translational research that integrates health and social service delivery and that contributes directly to improved population health.   CHAS is an endowed University of Chicago center established in 1962 to promote active interdisciplinary collaboration among scientists both within the University of Chicago and among national and international networks of health services and policy researchers.


The Center also supports an innovative health policy and research training program for graduate professional students at the University of Chicago, the Graduate Program in Health Administration and Policy (GPHAP). GPHAP is unique among health administration programs in the United States. GPHAP allows students to earn either a Certificate in Health Administration and Policy or a Certificate in Health Administration and Policy with a Concentration in Global Health, while earning a degree in one of the participating graduate schools on campus: the Booth School of Business, the Harris School of Public Policy, the Law School, the Pritzker School of Medicine, and the School of Social Service Administration.
