As a nation, we're living longer. According to the Center for Disease Control, the average life expectancy for a U.S. infant in 2007 was 77.9, rising from 75.8 in 1995. This means that the need for elder care is also on the rise. The Master of Health Administration/Gerontology degree program addresses the physical, emotional and cultural needs of the elderly; as well as the human services, economic and legal factors that influence them. As a graduate of this program, you will be able to balance strategy with the human side of aging to help bring value to the care your organization provides.

What you'll learn

The Master of Health Administration prepares leaders and aspiring leaders in the health sector by providing the competencies necessary to drive the future of healthcare through effective facilitation of cross-system transformation and the improvement of health outcomes for patients, populations, and providers. Areas of inquiry include industry and organizational dynamics, visioning the future, forming strategic relationships, leading with authenticity, creating a sustainable personal legacy, and transformation and execution in diverse health system contexts. As the health industry continues to undergo unprecedented growth, 'health' is beginning to encompass everything from patient care to community engagement to overarching system design.  The curricular framework for the newest version of the MHA is provided by the industry standard American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). The program provides UOPX students with an academically- rigorous and integrated experience that requires both critical thinking and creativity, while remaining aligned to professional and industry standards. The concentration in Gerontology for Health Administrators addresses the diverse needs of aging populations, focusing on the existing systems and emerging policy and social initiatives that inform the care continuum for these individuals now and in the future. Content includes exploration and critique of the environments and facilities that provide resources to aging populations, an entrepreneurial perspective on how to shape the industry in a way that is aging-centric, and strategies for improving health outcomes for these populations with an acute awareness of the complexity of existing cultural, economic, and legal factors.
