Learn how to improve communication and coordination in healthcare with a broad set of skills and tools rooted in research, technology, and practice.

Throughout the year, you’ll be exposed to a lot of information and opportunity in a short amount of time. Our cohort remains intimate to drive discussions forward in the classroom, connect personally with classmates, alumni and special guests, and to utilize our faculty and staff to shape your career. Our faculty expose you to new ideas in how healthcare can interact with patients, providers and more on a macro and micro level. Our staff offer guidance in academics, student life, and career management to support your professional goals.

Faculty, guest speakers and classmates will expose you to new ideas, new professional opportunities, and share your passion for improving care. Each student brings expertise to the group, helping those with different experiences and backgrounds learn from each other.
