AcademyHealth encourages students from a wide range of academic backgrounds to participate in the Student Chapter Program. Following are student chapters based in various schools and disciplines including health services research, health policy, public health, medicine, nursing, economics, health administration, pharmacy, and a number of health-related subjects. While AcademyHealth recognizes the importance of specialized training, we believe that through multidisciplinary collaboration students can have a more comprehensive learning experience. 

AcademyHealth is proud of its growing list of student chapters. If you want to participate in an existing chapter, simply email one of the officers listed below. If your university does not have an AcademyHealth student chapter, it's easy to start one, and AcademyHealth staff will assist you every step of the way. Our Chapter Toolkit has everything you need to get started.
