Program overview

The master of science in health systems administration provides strategic skills for today’s health care management professionals. Now, as never before, health care is rapidly transforming. The pace of technology and innovation are changing how, when, and where healthcare is provided, and who is providing it. Concurrently, health care consumers have high expectations for quality and responsiveness to their needs—delivered in a cost-effective manner. To provide these strategic skills, this post-graduate degree builds on a foundation of courses in policy and law formation, healthcare economics, finance, insurance reform, innovation, information technology, systems, operations and leadership. The course work is built on a foundation of skills and knowledge sets identified and endorsed by national health care leadership organizations. Graduates of the program are prepared to assume clinical and business leadership roles across the diverse healthcare industry.

The health care industry is changing rapidly due to healthcare reform and the Affordable Care Act. The MS degree encompasses course work that provides the graduate with a breadth of knowledge in areas key required for effective management of healthcare organizations: research, governance and economics, finance, health insurance, process improvement, project management and informatics. The curriculum also provides graduates a broad view of health care issues that administrators and leaders must be prepared to deal with effectively: change and innovation, leadership theory and application, bioethics, and human resources. Finally, the curriculum prepares the graduate to develop and implement plans designed to create and steer health care organizations of the future. Graduates will not only lead today’s healthcare organizations, they will create patient-centered facilities of the future.

Plan of study

The program requires 39 credit hours at the graduate level and can be completed in two years or less. Students may complete the program on a part-time basis. Students must maintain a 3.0 grade point average. Toward the end of their program of study, students complete a capstone project consisting of a community research experience. Upon matriculation, each student works with the program chair to develop a plan of study for their research experience.

Why get a dual degree in public and behavioral health?

The MPH-MSBH dual degree has been designed to prepare practitioners who are committed to eliminating health disparities, working with vulnerable populations, and creating social and physical environments that promote good health for all. This program is ideal for students who want a broad, in-depth knowledge base in public health with an emphasis on behavioral health skills. Courses are practice oriented and applied skills are emphasized. Dual degree students graduate with the knowledge to design, implement, and lead evidence-based health care and community programs.

The dual degree requires approximately 60 units. Full-time, dual degree students should be able to complete their course work in 6 semesters (24 months). Students can attend on a part-time basis and spread the program over three years. The course sequence can be adjusted on an individual basis.

On completing the dual degree program, graduates will have two degrees: Both the Master of Public Health and the MS in Behavioral Health. By pursuing this dual degree option, students will achieve a substantial savings in time and credits over completing these two degrees separately.

The dual degree has been designed to help students understand and address the social, emotional and environmental determinants of health and wellbeing. The program stresses the needs of underserved and at-risk populations. It teaches students how to implement and monitor programs; set up budgets, timelines and tracking tools; and write a grant proposal. Students also learn about ethics and policy, research methods, epidemiology, and statistical analysis and their roles in program development.

There is substantive focus on how to develop evidence-based interventions that have a high likelihood of success, use behavior change theory and holistic models and frameworks, and are based on community needs and assessment.

The Practice of Leadership, the Profession of Health Care

Today, leading a health care organization takes more than the ability to treat patients. Physicians in managerial roles need to balance financial responsibilities, competitive pressure and human resource needs in order to streamline the health delivery system.

The Master in Health Care Management program offers valuable experience and useful knowledge in a results-oriented environment. Participants gain practical managerial skills to augment their talent as physicians. The program allows participants to continue working full-time while pursuing the degree, and to interact with peers from across the globe.

Utilizing Harvard’s case-based teaching method combined with extensive peer collaboration, the degree program keeps clinical executives on top of trends, issues and competitive strategies unique to the modern health care system.

A Master’s Degree Tailored To Physicians’ Specific Leadership Needs

The Master in Health Care Management degree provides a unique, part-time, experience that delivers the best business management education for working physicians executives in or new to leadership roles in health care organizations.

The health care environment is increasingly competitive and financially driven. At the same time, health care providers have become more involved in managing the health delivery system, in addition to managing patients.

Physicians in managerial roles face important challenges as they struggle to balance financial and competitive constraints with the patient care mission of their organizations.

As the entities delivering health services have grown more corporate and complex, the need to acquire formal managerial and organizational skills has become critical.

A Flexible Program Designed Around Physicians’ Demanding Schedules
