The Department of Public Health Sciences (formerly Health Evaluation Sciences) brings a unique, interdisciplinary approach to the management and interpretation of healthcare information. We also support active teaching programs in Public Health and Health Evaluation. The Department is  composed of three major divisions:

  • Clinical Informatics: research and consulting on the application of computing and communications technology to biomedical research and health data. Clinical Informatics manages the UVa Clinical Data Repository in support of clinical research at UVa.
  • Biostatistics & Epidemiology: research and consulting on the application of statistical analyses to biomedical research data. Biostatistics and Epidemiology provides statistical support for many research projects at UVa.
  • Public Health Policy & Practice: teaching, research and community interventions in public health practice and health care policy.

Public Health Sciences also houses the Clinical Trials Office, which provides support services to clinical research projects.

More information about the Department is available through the Office of the Chair and the Mission Statement and History.
