For MPA-Health Management and Health Financial Management students. Students experience the challenges of executive leadership and strategic decision-making in a complex, multi-health system marketplace. Students will have an opportunity to integrate the knowledge and skills acquired throughout the program and apply them to a set of challenging problems in healthcare management via a strategic simulation. The technology provides students real-time feedback on processes and performance in the field. This realistic exercise effectively simulates the complexity and intensity of the evolving health system environment. As health system executives, they must analyze their institution’s overall strategic direction and make all decisions central to its successful operation, including mission/vision, service line mix, capacity, investment in quality (professional/clinical, systems, etc.), patient/payer mix, marketing, staffing, and financial structure.
All students must complete all five school-wide core courses plus the following courses:
HPAM-GP 1830 OR HPAM-GP 2836;
