Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Management

Location: Online
Start Term: Fall, Spring, Summer

As a healthcare manager, you have the power to help shape healthcare delivery. This program builds on your bachelor’s degree so that you can pursue advanced study in healthcare administration without a commitment to a master’s degree program.

This part-time, 12-credit program is offered entirely online, giving you the flexibility to continue to work, and can be completed in one year. You’ll focus on subject areas including systems thinking, leadership, and strategic decision making in healthcare. When you graduate, you’ll be well prepared to grow as a leader in healthcare or pursue your master’s in healthcare administration.

Students who complete the certificate may apply the credits toward the completion of our online Master of Healthcare Administration program.
