Our mission is to partner with and support healthcare professionals who are seeking to advance their careers. Our curriculum and practitioner faculty translate theory to workplace application with a focus on knowledge and competency building, along with leadership development. Assignments and Capstone Projects reflect development of competencies required for healthcare leadership.
The curriculum was designed to nurture accountable leaders who approach challenges analytically, reviewing data and evidence, while integrating ethical, compassionate, cultural, regulatory, and legal considerations in decision-making. The program highlights intrapersonal understanding and self-development to support cultivating collaboration and leading teams to execute change. The central focus of the program is leadership development, with courses and concepts woven through the program to complement didactic learning about the healthcare system.
Our program tracks serve two distinct segments of healthcare professionals. The Master of Healthcare Administration track supports early to mid-careerists who are interested in broadening their understanding of the healthcare system, financial and managerial approaches, and developing skills in analyzing data and evidence in decision-making. The Executive Master of Healthcare Administration track supports healthcare professionals who have advanced their careers and now seek to refine leadership competencies in aspects of anticipating, managing, and responding to industry changes. The Executive Master of Healthcare Administration track is offered exclusively to the Academy of Healthcare Fellows. Both tracks are offered online to better accommodate the responsibilities of working healthcare professionals.
Through an emphasis on workplace application focused on the development of character, competence and commitment, we will develop professionals well equipped to handle current and future healthcare needs and become the program of choice for working healthcare professionals who wish to prepare for the next steps in leadership.
The Master of Healthcare Administration program values reflect the university’s focus on character, competence, and commitment along with the university core themes of seeking to understand, living in community and searching together.
We believe healthcare leaders must exemplify character, competence, and commitment to serve and lead. Together we seek to understand the healthcare environment, the inherent challenges of delivering quality care, and the diverse needs of stakeholders. We live in community with stakeholders – patients, their loved ones, and provider/caregivers from all specialties and settings. Together, we search daily for the best approaches to delivering quality care and for developing healthier communities.
