Executive MS in Population Health Management

The 12-month executive program is designed for experienced health care professionals, such as, providers, clinical managers, and healthcare executives with at least 5 years’ practice experience, who are interested in enhancing their knowledge and skills to create sustainable models for value-based and accountable care.

  • Strategically aligned weekend seminars that allow for in-depth exploration of key topics;
  • A cohort-based structure that fosters collaboration with other clinicians and administrators;
  • Courses led by respected population health leaders; and a strong focus on applied learning, so you quickly put new knowledge and skills into practice.
