The Heller School of Brandeis University, Waltham, MA, is now offering an Executive Master of Business Administration (MBA) for Physicians. The program will focus on improving patient care experiences, clinical outcomes, and operational results in health care institutions and organizations by training physician leaders in a blend of medicine and management. The application deadline is December 1.
The program, designed for practicing physicians who are presently in or who aspire to serve in management or leadership positions, integrates the physician’s medical expertise with new knowledge. Critical areas covered will range from health care policy and economics to operational systems management, high-performance leadership, and health care innovation.
The degree is structured as an accelerated 16-month program with four 10-day residential sessions. Students will spend off-campus time taking webinars, pursuing individual study and preparation, and engaging in online blended learning. Openings are available for up to 30 physicians, who will participate in several major projects over the period of the course (January 2016–May 2017).
