You will receive the most current and essential curricula regarding emerging healthcare issues/trends, evidence-based practice, population-focused practice, leadership, and systems-thinking for impacting quality and safety outcomes in healthcare.

With the help of Health Services Administration faculty members, you may elect to complete an applied research project to satisfy the final capstone project. These applied research projects are designed to advance your knowledge in the field of healthcare administration and give you an opportunity to present and publish your student research project at and other venues.

You will be given the opportunity to participate in a final, scholarly capstone project.

This experience connects coursework/theory to organizational experiences to allow students to witness the confluence of theory and practice. The hands-on immersion in the field reinforces a commitment to the profession and helps culminate your work into a professional executive portfolio in the final capstone course.

MSUM and the School of Nursing and Healthcare Leadership encourage opportunities and may support travel to health administration conferences and events.
