Self-governed, with the assistance of your instructor, this program is designed for working professionals who have a bachelor’s degree and three years of experience in a healthcare environment. To be successful in the program, you’ll also need strong organizational and time management skills.
What is competency-based education?
CBE degree programs emphasize the mastery of skills and proficiency requirements for specific fields, industries and jobs. The application of that theory through projects and assignments allows students to demonstrate their understanding of the curricular components in an outcome that can yield a tangible result. You’ll take approximately four courses every 16 weeks, moving through the content with the completion of authentic assessments evaluated by your instructor.
This program gives you even more flexibility to balance school around your life. More importantly, it means every competency you master doesn’t just bring you closer to graduation — it's another skill you can use in the workplace.
You'll learn how to:
Develop the leadership skills needed to enhance your career
Use data to reduce cost and improve the quality of patient care
Navigate the world of healthcare mergers and acquisitions
Respond quickly to changes in the healthcare sector
Use data to address the Triple Aim (cost/quality of care, health of populations, patient-centrism)
