Health Care Administration Concentration (Starting Winter 2020)
The M.H.Sc. degree with a concentration in Health Care Administration is designed to provide clinical and administrative health professionals with the theoretical and practical training necessary to enhance career mobility and professional advancement. The new concentration will offer courses in leadership and management, finance, ethics, risk management, research, and other essential areas of health care administration. While there are specific routes for administrators to follow into higher leadership roles, this type of educational experience is often lacking for the clinician who wishes to assume more leadership responsibility within their medical organization. Current research evidence shows that there is a need for not just formal administrative leadership, but also a need to develop integrated leadership processes throughout healthcare delivery systems.
A program that provides potential leaders in health care with the necessary skills, abilities, and competencies to realize their goals is needed. Leadership opportunities abound in a broad array of environments through the full spectrum of health care from education, the implementation of policy and technology as well as the delivery of health care. The M.H.Sc. program at Nova Southeastern University has the resources and expert faculty to provide students with a meaningful educational experience in Administration in Health Care.
Completing this concentration requires 31 credits as detailed below.
Note: All courses are delivered and organized as distance learning
