JSPH offers managed care pharmacists and other health practitioners career development and learning opportunities in these key areas:

- Healthcare Quality and Safety (MS-HQS; Graduate Certificate) prepares healthcare professionals to be leaders and advocates in the design, implementation and dissemination of programs and policies that measurably improve healthcare quality and patient safety.
- Applied Health Economics and Outcomes Research (MS-AHEOR; Graduate Certificate) prepares professionals to evaluate and measure health outcomes (both physical and humanistic) and to ascertain economic consequences of health care interventions by determining optimal clinical effectiveness, comparative effectiveness and economic value.
- Population Health (Graduate Certificate)prepares leaders to understand population health as it establishes new priorities in chronic disease prevention, evidence-based practice, comparative effectiveness, and quality and safety.
To receive the discount, AMCP members will indicate that they are affiliated with AMCP under the "supplemental questions" section of the Jefferson School of Population Health application. Individuals must be current with their AMCP dues throughout the program.
