Community of Interest Board Members

Health Services Administration & Master of Healthcare Administration

The MSUM School of Nursing & Healthcare Leadership includes two dynamic and growing programs in healthcare leadership: an undergraduate Health Services Administration (HSAD) degree and a Master’s in Healthcare Administration (MHA) graduate degree. Both programs have strong, growing enrollment. Members of our Community of Interest (COI) Board play an important role in providing feedback that helps form program planning, assessment and implementation of improvement activities for our educational programs.
