Choose from multiple starts dates and three tracks: leadership, process engineering and health informatics. All 15 credit hours of the graduate certificate may be applied to the MS in the science of health care delivery.
Change in the health care system has accelerated as the health care system transforms itself to one focused on value rather than on volume. The certificate program in the science of health care delivery addresses the current and future needs of the workforce in the health care industry, such as C-suite executives and administrators, health care providers (physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and nurses), front line staff (respiratory therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists and dietitians) and students in the health-related disciplines.
