Dynamic learning in the classroom

In our programs you will benefit from small classes, and will be taught by internationally-renowned faculty and instructors who bring their extensive experience into the classroom. We pride ourselves on providing our students with the education necessary to work in the field and push the discipline forward.

You will take courses that focus on three areas including information technology, clinical systems and the business aspects of the health care industry. You will learn to identify information and data needed by doctors, hospital administrators, government planners and other health care professionals and how they are used in order to make effective health care decisions. Please see the detailed course list below.
