Overview

The Master of Healthcare Administration program vision reflects the university’s focus on character, competence, and commitment along with the core themes of seeking to understand, living in community and searching together.  We will develop healthcare leaders who exemplify character, competence, and  commitment to serve and lead.  Together we will seek to understand the healthcare environment, the inherent challenges of delivering quality care, and the diverse needs of stakeholders. 

We will live in community with stakeholders – patients, their loved ones, and caregivers. We will search together daily for the best approaches to delivering quality care and for developing healthier communities.

 We aspire 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.
