Collaboratively offered through our Department of Public Health and Health Sciences (PHHS) and the School of Management (SOM), the new Master of Science in Health Care Management looks to continue a strong growth of health care offerings by the University of Michigan-Flint.
Students who graduate from this program will not only complete a master’s degree, but will also complete an SOM business certificate as well.
RESPONDING TO HEALTH CARE NEEDS
The demand for health care services is increasingly driven by an overall aging population. Our workforce must be responsive by adequately training our current and future leaders. Health care administrators and managers will use this degree to earn the management education necessary for professional success, personal advancement, and overall patient well-being.
Through this program, students will learn not only state-of-the-art practical underpinnings of health care management, but also how to implement proven foundational concepts and frameworks through simulated “real world” applications and exercises. The MS in Health Care Management will allow students to work effectively as self-aware, reflective change agents, armed with a deeper understanding of organizational dynamics. Graduates of this program will have the knowledge to improve patient and organizational outcomes while employing leadership practices that will lead their organizations to success in their respective health care segments of the economy.
