The Department of Health Management and Systems Sciences designed the MSHA program to deepen knowledge of environments, processes, structures, and strategies that are driving disruption in healthcare. The curriculum has 3 main components:

(1) Exploration of broad principles and key influencers of leading healthcare organizations

(2) Examination of evidence-based and data-driven frameworks for strategic leadership and effective management of healthcare organizations and issues

(3) Analysis of the external healthcare and policy environments that impact population and community healthcare management

The MSHA program uses UofL’s Population Health Leadership (PHL) Competency Model, a modified version of the National Center for Healthcare Leadership (NCHL) competency model. The program is 57 credit hours, designed to be completed in two years.

The MSHA courses are offered on our Health Sciences Center campus in downtown Louisville. Courses are primarily offered Monday–Thursday after 4 p.m. to accommodate students who work full-time.

SPHIS is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health. The MSHA is accredited with the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME). CAHME is the accrediting body for graduate programs in health management in the US.
