A graduate of the University of Providence Master of Science in Infection Prevention and Epidemiology program will be a leader and educator in the prevention of infections across the healthcare continuum using epidemiological and infection prevention tools and principles. This change agent will use systems thinking, data, and evidence-based practice to drive collaboration that improves patient safety.
The program is offered in eight-week online courses for working professionals who desire a robust and marketable degree. Through a sequenced, cohort model, students complete one course every eight weeks and finish within two years. All students must attend a 1.5 day face-to-face program orientation prior to the start of the program. New cohorts begin in January and August each year.
“This new program will help address the emerging critical need for infection prevention expertise that is recognized as a key risk in many healthcare settings, extending beyond the walls of hospitals into ambulatory, long-term care, and community service settings.”
