The science of health care delivery is one of the fastest-growing medical curriculums focused not only on what care practitioners should provide but how they should provide it. Some of the most well-respected medical schools in the country are incorporating this philosophy into their medical school curriculums and offering stand-alone degrees aimed at developing the next generation of health care administrators and medical leaders.


  • Dr. Daniel Johnson, professor of radiology, leads Science of Healthcare Delivery program, Mayo Clinic Arizona.
  • Dr. Swapna Reddy, professor of health policy and health disparities, Arizona State University.
  • Dr. Kristin Will, assistant dean, associate professor of health solutions, Arizona State University.
  • Greg Sprout, medical student, University of Arizona.


The rare monkeypox virus, usually confined mostly to Central and West Africa, has spread in unusual ways this year and among populations that have not been vulnerable in the past. More than 100 cases have been reported globally, including here in Florida.
