Population Health

Pop Health Academy

Students working on computersThe University of Washington operates at the forefront of addressing the interconnected factors that influence how long and how well we live, from climate change and poverty to systemic inequities and health care.

The UW Population Health Initiative has launched Pop Health Academy, a free, online population health learning space for those interested in expanding their understanding of population health.

Pop Health Academy’s first available course, “Foundations of Population Health,” is self-paced and intended to offer learners a holistic and foundational introduction to key concepts of population health. While this course is designed primarily for students, it can be taken by any member of the public interested in furthering their knowledge.

Throughout this course, learners can expect to define population health, investigate factors that influence health and well-being and explore essential interventions for achieving improvements in population health. Learners who successfully complete the course will be able to download a certificate of completion.
