The NU Difference
Take a Northwestern Direction
Healthcare is fragmented and complex. As a result, cost, quality, safety, and patient experience suffer. Northwestern MSHC students use their ambition, imagination, optimism, and curiosity to bridge gaps, improve coordination, and simplify across the healthcare industry. They take a Northwestern direction towards better care.
Problems of cost, quality, safety, and patient experience are large and complex. No single discipline can give you all the tools to fully address these issues. The MS in Health Communication draws faculty from several disciplines around the university with the goal of providing you with a robust range of tools and skills to solve problems in healthcare. Primarily, the program draws faculty from Communication, Health Services Research, and Engineering.
