UCLA’s online Master of Healthcare Administration is designed to help healthcare professionals reach goals with effective, value-based care strategies guided by data and compassion.
The EMPH program taught me business planning and management, program evaluation, and strategic thinking. I appreciated the local and global perspectives to healthcare. Being taught by such influential individuals in the healthcare field was inspirational. There are so many ways to make a difference in Public Health and this program provides an opportunity to realize the abundance of career paths.
One of the things that I learned and experienced in the program was the cross section between a variety of healthcare professionals. This allowed for great dialogue in and out of the classroom. By the end of the program, I had gained greater confidence as a result of gaining a solid foundation of healthcare knowledge from the political realm, payer sources, hospitals, the VA, and community health care settings.
The EMPH Program is a unique collaboration between a strongly motivated group of students and equally motivated faculty, who want them to learn what they need to succeed. It's much more than a collection of academic courses. It is an action-oriented blueprint for future success in healthcare!
