Healthcare Leadership

Overview

As healthcare rapidly evolves and the demands of the industry shift daily, healthcare leaders must be more strategic and visionary than ever before. The Healthcare Leadership program prepares you to compete in a value-driven system as you learn collaborative and integrative techniques that drive high-quality, cost-effective healthcare.

As you evaluate the realities and limitations of healthcare systems and learn how to transform these dynamic environments (through leadership, policy changes, technology updates, a global perspective, or the law), you will gain insight to values-centered leadership models. Applying your knowledge to real-world scenarios through practice-based curriculum, you will be uniquely qualified to assume strategic healthcare positions in leadership roles within the broad field of healthcare.

Healthcare Leadership Outcomes

This program prepares students to:

  • Manage and lead in a variety of healthcare settings
  • Develop the ability to create solutions to address the current trends and challenges facing the healthcare industry.
  • Identify and evaluate major healthcare reform efforts and proposals
  • Compare and contrast technological solutions to current issues in healthcare systems
  • Articulate responses to national and global healthcare challenges
  • Identify ethical and legal considerations pertinent to the delivery of healthcare

Director's Message

Irene Frederick

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Healthcare Leadership. Designed to address the growing needs of those working within healthcare, or those transitioning to healthcare careers, join us as we address the challenges encountered in healthcare today. Five concentration areas with numerous elective options allow you to design a degree or certificate program tailored to your particular career goals. Take your position to the next level or adapt a prior career to coordinate within healthcare by designing a program that works for you. I invite you to explore the other University College master’s programs for collaborative electives or additional certificates that expand course offerings into such areas as project management, database or mobile application design, philanthropic (non-profit) leadership, security management, environmental health policy, emergency preparedness, and a multitude of other possibilities. Design your course of study to prepare for certification examinations such as the Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality (CPHQ) or Project Management Professional (PMP). Please join us as we educate a new generation of healthcare leaders.
