The Vanderbilt Master of Management of Health Care program is designed for working professionals (minimum 5 years of work experience) who want to take their clinical expertise or specialized knowledge a step further by applying it more broadly across a public or private healthcare delivery organization. Students are managers, health care practitioners, working clinicians and executives in—or moving into—management roles in hospitals, clinics, managed care organizations or pharmacies. The class is intentionally comprised of 1/3 physician leaders, 1/3 clinical leaders and 1/3 non-clinical administrators and each Capstone Strategy Team is comprised of peers from these different backgrounds. Ideally, students are supported and/or sponsored by their current employers.
