The University of Georgia College of Public Health announces the launch of a Master of Health Administration (MHA) degree program.
The program is designed for students who aspire to leadership positions in healthcare. Through a structured curriculum and practice-based learning opportunities, the program aims to provide foundational knowledge and professional skills that will prepare students for administration careers.
“While students will get similar training in management, organizational theories and practices, policy strategies, and leadership principles that they would in other programs, the UGA MHA is specifically tailored to the healthcare administration sector,” said program coordinator Dr. Lesley Clack , assistant professor in health policy and management at the College.
The MHA is widely recognized as the degree of choice by employers when hiring for healthcare administrative positions in the U.S. The launch of the MHA degree program at UGA CPH reflects the college’s commitment to training the future public health and healthcare workforce to care for a growing and aging population.
The program is now accepting applicants for Fall 2019.Friday Letter Submission, Publish on June 14
