    Michael Harvey DrPH, MPH

    Assistant Professor, Department of Health Services, Policy, and Practice (HSPP)

    Professor Harvey is a social scientist and qualitative methodologist with interests in academic public health education, public health theory, and access to specialty care within indigenous Guatemalan communities. His research to date has sought to characterize the theoretical content of public health instruction, and the implications of that content for the field’s ability to address pressing public health issues. Within the literature, he has advocated for the inclusion of social theoretical perspectives to complement behavioral theoretical ones. He has contributed to the development of the emerging instructional framework of structural competency, which entails the trained ability to recognize and respond to disease and its unequal distribution as the outcome of social structures, such as policies, laws, systems, and institutions. For the past 10 years, he has been involved in rural Guatemala collaborating with colleagues there to expand access to health care services. He has a passion for the classroom and has taught courses on the US health care system, health policy analysis, comparative health care systems, global health, and public health theory, among others. Professor Harvey holds a Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) degree from the University of California, Berkeley and a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Pennsylvania.
