The Hopkins Fall Institute is a month of intensive courses in health policy, held at the Pompeu Fabra University where the JHU-UPF Public Policy Center is based. The Institute enables health professionals to embark upon or strengthen their education, with courses delivered by experts from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, in collaboration with the Agència de Salut Pública de Barcelona (Barcelona Public Health Agency). Students are invited to gain a solid knowledge of policies and management approaches in public health, along with new explorations and innovations in the field.

With a key focus on effective policy implementation and management, the graduate-level courses offered at the Institute are equivalent to regular Bloomberg School offerings given during the traditional academic year. They can serve as supplementary education and professional improvement, or can count toward Hopkins credit.

The Hopkins Fall Institute 2020 was held for the 17th year between October and December 2020. It was delivered online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There were 210 registered students from 24 countries participating in 17 courses and workshops.
