University of Washington – Master of Healthcare Administration 

As a member of the Washington State Healthcare Executive Forum, you are well aware of the need to train the future generation of healthcare leaders. In your current role, you may be mentoring individuals that have expressed an interest in expanding their role in their organization. The UW Master of Healthcare Administration Program was designed with that very individual in mind. Through a rigorous two-year program where students meet in person or online, they develop key business, management, and adaptive leadership competencies that have been chosen to prepare them for today’s complex healthcare environment. Your own experience has taught you that one must be prepared to deal with the unthinkable challenges such as a pandemic. And whether the person you have in mind is just entering the healthcare space or a more seasoned leader, there are options available for both. 

The MHA Program is part of the UW Programs in Health Management and Informatics—a grouping of interdisciplinary degrees housed in the School of Public Health—and has been training healthcare leaders for 48 years. The program is led by Sarah Cave, MHA who states, “Our Executive MHA Program is an outstanding opportunity for working professionals who are ready to take the next step in their career.” And the Chair of the MHA Alumni Association Board, Marina Farah, MD, MHA adds, “I owe my post-clinical career success to the UW EMHA program and encourage individuals who are passionate about transforming U.S. healthcare to make the 2-year investment.”

Please pass on this opportunity to anyone you believe that could benefit from this boost to their career. Future leaders enrolling now, please contact, Christine Fleming, Marketing and Recruitment Specialist for the UW Programs in Health Management and Informatics: fleming7@uw.edu or 206-543-4705.
