HSM: Practitioner-Teacher Model
HSM is an elite program…

The HSM program is part of a world class academic medical center; providing students with a greater depth and breadth of practical, hands-on competencies than a traditional graduate education model.

HSM is ranked among the elite health administration programs by U.S. News & World Report and enjoys an outstanding reputation for its innovative practitioner-teacher model, where learning is facilitated by practitioners at the cutting edge of health care today.
that combines theory and practice…
The curriculum is designed to provide in-depth knowledge and skills in all major aspects of health services management, including health care finance, operations, clinical management, information systems, ethics, informatics, strategy, quality, human resource management, law, and change management.
HSM faculty actively participates in the delivery of healthcare and is recognized for their administrative, research and clinical expertise. This approach to professional education provides a seamless integration of learning from the classroom to the practice setting.
HSM faculty combines case studies, theories and personal experience to drive experiential learning. Students will also have opportunities to build their network by interacting with a vast array of industry leading professionals.
and educates future leaders of healthcare...
This model combined with challenging and meaningful internships – where students have the opportunity to make a difference – is a powerful combination and provides students with a solid foundation and tools to succeed as healthcare practitioners and future leaders.
