High Quality Training
Our program is currently pursuing accreditation by CAHME, the world’s gold standard in healthcare management education. Only an elite set of institutions are awarded this accreditation which we hope to earn within two years. CAHME accredited programs are required to certifiy that all students in the program are taught the 5 core domains of healthcare management: healthcare industry knowledge, general business knowledge and skills, communication and relationship management, leadership, and professionalism.
In 2015, our entire curriculum was revised to ensure that students enrolled in the MSHA are learning the most cutting edge aspects of healthcare management. As a result of these changes, we have added courses in health communication, population health management, health informatics, healthcare leadership, project management and more.
The MSHA program allows students to take advantage of internship opportunities to help you prepare for work in the healthcare industry. Our students have done internships with the following organizations and many more:
|Yale New Haven Hospital||Milford Hospital|
|Bridgeport Hospital||Eye Centers of Southern Connecticut|
|Eye Centers of Connecticut||Norwalk Community Health Center|
|Smilow Cancer Center at Yale New Haven Hospital||Comprehensive Orthopedics (Wallingford, CT)|
