RELEVANT, RIGOROUS, INDEPENDENT

The mission of the Leonard D. Schaeffer Center for Health Policy & Economics is to measurably improve value in health through evidence-based policy solutions, research excellence, transformative education, and private and public sector engagement. With its extraordinary breadth and depth of expertise, the Schaeffer Center will have a vital impact on the transformation of healthcare.

Led by Dana Goldman, Distinguished Professor and Leonard D. Schaeffer Director's Chair at USC, the Center was established in 2009 through a generous gift from Leonard and Pamela Schaeffer. The Center is housed within both the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy and School of Pharmacy, bringing together health policy experts from the Price School, a seasoned pharmacoeconomics team from the School of Pharmacy, and other affiliated faculty and scholars from across USC and other distinguished universities.

Experts at the Center conduct innovative, independent research. The Center adheres to USC Conflict of Interest policies. The Center’s conflict of interest statement is available here.
