HILS is the nation’s first graduate program focused on the science and methods of learning health systems. Increasingly recognized in academic literature, learning health systems are the underpinning of wide-ranging health improvement movements nationally and globally. The HILS program addresses the learning health systems core competencies, recently published by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Above all, the program aims to improve the health of individuals and populations by developing practitioners and researchers who design, implement and evaluate innovative change and continuous improvement.

HILS is housed in the Department of Learning Health Sciences (DLHS), a basic science department in the University of Michigan Medical School, ranked in the top ten nationally. DLHS focuses on the science of learning at all levels of scale, from individuals to systems spanning states and nations.

A brand new program, HILS matriculated its first students in the fall of 2016. PhD applications are due December 1, 2017 to begin in the fall of 2018. Visit for MS program deadlines.
