Health care is the second-largest industry in the United States and the nation’s single largest private employer. There is a tremendous need for effective and ethical health care leaders with the ability to manage interdisciplinary teams in a complex and evolving health care environment.
The Health Care Organization Management and Leadership Program (HCM) from the University of Rochester School of Nursing is designed for working adults from health care-related professional backgrounds who wish to work in a health care management role.
The Health Care Organization Management and Leadership curriculum is broadly interdisciplinary with a focus on the “big picture” opportunities and challenges facing health care systems. Through hybrid coursework (a blend of in-person and online) and a hands-on capstone project, you’ll sharpen your skills as a manager or leader and learn best practices to assure efficient, quality, and safe patient care delivery systems.
Unlike other health care management degrees, the UR School of Nursing program includes 224 hours of mentored field placement with health care organizations and leaders. Not only will you gain real-world management experience, but you will forge invaluable professional relationships and receive one-on-one attention from expert faculty who actively practice in their fields.
