The curriculum stresses innovation and strategic problem-solving by applying analytical, technical, and management skills required to improve the quality, cost-effectiveness, and integration of health and health care organizations and systems.
The interdisciplinary curriculum brings our early-career students together with physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals creating a collaborative learning environment.
