Program Overview

Since 1979, the Rush Health System Management program has been preparing future health care leaders for progressively more responsible and influential positions with health services delivery systems across the United States and around the world. Ranked among the best health administration programs by U.S. News & World Report, Rush enjoys an outstanding reputation for its innovative practitioner-teacher model, where learning is facilitated by real-world executives who work at the cutting-edge of health care today.

We offer an innovative, world class education, in the setting of an elite academic medical center. Our curriculum is designed to provide in-depth knowledge and skills in all major aspects of health services management, including health care finance, information systems, analytic decision-making, strategy, quality, human resource management, law, change management and interprofessional relationships.

Each year we welcome an intimate group of students to come learn with us as we forge the future of health care delivery. We encourage you to get to know our program by looking around this website. We also offer periodic information sessions where you can meet faculty, students and alumni of the program. You are also welcome to contact us directly with any questions you may have.
