About the MHA Degree

What Medical and Health Services Managers Do

  • Medical and health services managers, also called healthcare executives or healthcare administrators, plan, direct, and coordinate medical and health services. They might manage an entire facility or specialize in managing a specific clinical area or department, or manage a medical practice for a group of physicians. Medical and health services managers must be able to adapt to changes in healthcare laws, regulations, and technology.

  • For the 4 + 1 Option, each 3-credit-hour course will consist of two hours of didactic learning and one hour of field-based experiential learning. The ongoing emphasis on experiential learning will provide practical experience for each student.  The field-based experiential learning will occur through regional healthcare partners, in collaboration with MHA Alumni.
