The MHA is a professional program for clinicians, administrators, researchers and managers who are seeing solutions to today’s complex health delivery issues. Our weekend modular format is designed for working professionals. You will complete courses that provide the big picture of health care such as health policy, social determinants of health and quality of care. You will also gain essential skills for management through courses in accounting, finance, IT, human resources and leadership. The program is 24 months, including 24 courses and a capstone research project.
