With a graduate certificate in Healthcare Administration and Planning, you can develop skills which are in high demand in expanding healthcare policy and service delivery arenas. For certificate students admitted for Spring 2017 and thereafter, the curriculum requires six 3-credit courses: Epidemiology for Administrators, Financial Management for Health and Nonprofit Organizations, Health Organizations and Delivery Systems, Research Methods, Statistics, and Ethics and Values in the Public Sector.
Courses are offered in a variety of delivery approaches (evening hybrid or online) which help meet our students' needs as working adults. You can start the certificate in spring, summer or fall. You can seek this certificate in combination with the MPA or PhD, or on its own as a stand-alone credential.
Seek advising before registration every semester to make sound course choices and stay on track for completion (Contact your advisor). Students who want to pursue this certificate along with either the MPA or PhD should seek advising each semester before choosing any electives in the certificate to minimize chances of having to take an extra course while satisfying each set of requirements.
