BRADENTON, Fla. – Tim Novak, Director of LECOM’s Masters in Health Services Administration (MHSA) program, announced today that when their new January 2017 class arrives on campus for orientation, they will have reached their goal of 100 graduate students actively enrolled.
“Our MHSA program has realized planned levels for growth and quality development through a disciplined strategic approach,” Novak said. “We have conferred 44 MHSA degrees since the program began in January 2014 and we are proud to report all our graduates are working in the industry. Students enter the MHSA program seeking the knowledge and skills required to become effective healthcare business leaders. Our communities need these talented professionals to help solve the complex healthcare industry challenges facing our Nation today,” continued Novak. LECOM’s rigorous 50 credit hour MHSA program is essential, flexible and affordable. The common threads of innovation, effective communication and development of strong complex problem solving skills tie the program together.
LECOM is helping to create well prepared and formally trained healthcare business professionals to serve our aging U.S. population. Bloomberg reports that spending in medical services will approach 20% of the U.S. gross domestic product by 2021. The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that by 2020, employment of health service administrators will grow by 22%, faster than the average for all occupations. “We utilize interactive distance education learning platforms that are impactful,” Novak said. “The professionals in the MHSA program are not just gathering a highly sought after credential; they are truly preparing to positively impact health and wellness in the communities we live.”
Approximately 98% percent of the MHSA didactic curriculum is delivered through a dynamic, web-based distance education platform by an expert team of faculty with deep healthcare industry experience. The program includes an exciting “Executive Interview & Analysis” course that provides students immersion into various healthcare settings where they can directly apply the theories and skills they are learning in the program. This program is specifically designed for busy professionals who are looking to advance their education while continuing to work full time. The next MHSA cohort begins with an exciting four day orientation at the Erie, PA LECOM Bayfront campus January 5-8, 2017 and at the Bradenton, FL LECOM campus January 12-15, 2017.
Whether you are looking to expand your career opportunities or transition into the business side of healthcare, the LECOM MHSA program can help get you ready in just 18 months.
