Program Description:

The curriculum of the MHA is designed to prepare a variation of professionals from both health and non-health related areas to lead health service organizations. All students enrolled in the MHA will be required to take Foundation, Advanced and Elective courses, along with a Thesis and potential residency depending on length of healthcare experience. The total number of credits is 45.

Vision

To be a premier high value provider of health administration education at the regional, state and national level to all types of clinical and non-clinical individuals.

Mission

The MHA program will provide students with tools for successful careers and personal growth through:

  • The use of both on-campus and off-campus media to enhance their skills, knowledge and abilities in health administration at a reasonable expense
  • Instruction of theoretical and conceptual frameworks for programmatic solutions in actual practice settings,
  • Instruction in the domains and competencies required by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME)
  • Preparation for leadership in private, public, profit or non-profit health service organizations
  • Community based residencies that add value to patients’ care (required or optional depending on individual experience), and
  • A unique professional based thesis that is focused on improving care or resource use in healthcare

Goals

Programmatic goals include obtaining a selection of both diverse student and faculty educational and experiential backgrounds to foster increased interdisciplinary understanding of health care. Because a health administrator supports those who provide care, it is incumbent to include both clinicians and non-clinicians in the student body to refine their analytical, verbal and quantitative skills for resolving complex health care issues.
