This 100 percent online graduate program may be completed in 12 months of full-time study and will provide emerging leaders invaluable solutions to complex issues they encounter in healthcare administration.

The new Master of Science in Healthcare Leadership (MS-HCL) degree program, designed by Union Institute & University, will focus on the leadership insights that catalyze organizational transformation and social change within the healthcare industry. The program will offer the most important determinant of long-term leadership success: mentoring. Mentors in the program will guide and demonstrate through example how to understand one’s own skills, limitations, and ambitions while fulfilling the needs of the healthcare organization.

“Healthcare is no longer just about medical care. In fact, there is now consensus that “health” is more than medical care; and that health of populations is more significantly determined by social conditions such as access to education, jobs, and housing,” said Dr. Jennifer Ossege, MS-HCL Program Director. “Based on Union Institute & University’s historical commitment to ethical and creative leadership and the insights gained over the past 50 years in adult learning, Union is offering this expertise and applying them to healthcare leadership through this new graduate program.”

This 100 percent online graduate program may be completed in 12 months of full-time study and will provide emerging leaders invaluable solutions to complex issues they encounter in healthcare administration.

“This program trains students to be successful and innovative healthcare leaders under circumstances in which there are no precedents, as well as maintaining ethical standards and preserving the founding mission of their respective healthcare organizations,” said Dr. Nelson Soto, Provost. “It will provide the necessary knowledge and skills in administration and management, as well as fostering creativity, ethics, leadership, and social entrepreneurship to assist students in achieving success for their organizations.”
