Dr Juan Baeza came to Kings College London in 2007 to take up his post of lecturer in Health Policy. He graduated from the University of London in 1990 where he obtained a BA (Hons) in Social Science and Administration. He then went on to complete an MSc in Social Policy and Planning from the London School of Economics. After working in the Chilean Ministry of Health he returned to work in the UK at the University of Kent. He was awarded a PhD in Social Policy and Administration in 2002 from the University of Kent, the title of his thesis was The intraprofessional relations of hospital consultants and general practitioners in the NHS in England. In 2004-2006 Juan took a Research Fellow position at the University of Melbourne in the Department of Political Science. He undertook research into indigenous health policy.
Juan's research focuses on health policy analysis. He has worked on various projects that have examined the impact of health reform programmes upon various levels of different health systems. Although much of his work has focused on the British NHS he has also carried out research in Chile, Mexico, Russia and most recently Australia. He is particularly interested on the impact of health reform upon on the medical profession and how the medical profession influences health policy at the macro, meso and micro levels.
On the MA Public Policy Juan co-teaches on the core module The Policy Process and the optional module Designing Public Policy. Juan also teaches Key issues in health policy which is a Department of Management optional module that Public Policy students can choose.
Juan is happy to consider PhD applications in the following areas:
