We are thrilled to announce campus approval of a new Graduate Certificate in Health Management. Students who complete this three course certificate will have it officially recognized on their graduate transcript. The certificate courses are all required courses in the HPM concentration:
PHW224 Organizational Behavior and Management in Health Care (Fall 1)
PHW223 Strategic Management in Healthcare (Summer 2)
PHW227A Healthcare Finance (Spring 2)
Students outside of the HPM concentration are highly encouraged to consider the Certificate, as the skills learned have broad applicability to other areas of public health.
About the Certificate
Globally, enhancing health and wellbeing is a top priority for citizens, businesses, entrepreneurs, social impact advocates and governments. Given the complexities involved in system reform, advancing equity and being good stewards of scarce resources, there has been an increased demand for professionals who have skills in applied managerial decision-making in the healthcare sector.
Effectively managing a diverse array of organizations that operate in this sector requires specialized knowledge and expertise in several key disciplines including an understanding of organizational and financial structures within organizations, as well as experience with strategic planning and implementation. The primary objective of this comprehensive suite of toolkit courses is to support students to achieve these critical competencies with a focus on skills, frameworks, and applied learning. The Graduate Certificate in Health Management will provide an opportunity for students to not only learn the theoretical concepts, but also to practice these very important skills through a combination of team projects, presentations, and case studies.
