April 3, 2014 - Modern Healthcare magazine has ranked the University of Memphis’ Master
of Health Administration program 19th among top business graduate schools for physician-executives.
The MHA program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management
Education (CAHME). The 53-credit hour program offers both on-campus and executive
options designed for both recent college graduates and working professionals. The
on-campus MHA’s evening class hours accommodate both full-time and part-time study
and offer extended internships during the work day for full-time students.
The ranking is based on the availability of evening or weekend classes, the incorporation
of some online study, the availability to complete the degree in two to three years,
and part-time and full-time options.
“At the University of Memphis, we take pride in being as accessible as we can to adult
learners who want to come back to school to earn an additional degree,” said Dr. Dan
Gentry, professor and director of Health Systems Management Policy. “Never before
have clinicians and other health care professionals needed the knowledge and skills
to competently manage and lead health care organizations as a team as they do now.
We will continue to assure that our on-campus MHA program is accessible to full- and
part-time students, even as we prepare to implement the Executive MHA for experienced
clinicians and other working professionals in June 2015.”
