Healthcare continues to be one of the most dynamic sectors of the United States economy, and all expectations are that this trend will continue for decades to come. Because of this continuing growth there are numerous opportunities for exciting career opportunities.

Careers are available in hospital administration, managed care, long term care administration, ambulatory care, physician practice management, and many others. These are rewarding career paths, primarily because effective leadership in these organizations can make a difference in the communities they serve. Healthcare is more driven by its business aspects today than in the past. This situation will become even more the case in the future. The Master of Health Administration Program at the University of Memphis will provide you the knowledge, skills, and tools you need to meet this challenge. We are fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME).

The Graduate Program is one that can accommodate either full-time or part-time students. Our educational philosophy is one that blends a strong foundation of classroom work with a variety of opportunities to apply those skills. Our relationship with the healthcare community allows us to use “real” healthcare organizations as our extended classrooms where students tackle real issues and challenges for our community partners. In addition, students will complete an internship which serves the purpose of gaining experience, gaining confidence in your abilities, and exposing you to contemporary issues in this dynamic field.

Full-time students can complete the Graduate Program in two (2) years, while completion time varies for part-time students, generally based on their time constraints. Admission for Full-time students is for the Fall semester only. Part-time students can be admitted in the Fall.

Employment prospects are excellent with virtually a 100% employment rate for graduates.

We hope you will consider our Graduate Program for your education and future. Feel free to contact us at your convenience, and if possible, come visit us. We look forward to talking with you.
