Master of Science in Medical Management
Simon Business School offers a part-time MS program in Medical Management to provide physicians, hospital administrators, and medical professionals with management tools and an understanding of the key business issues that confront health care providers. The part-time structure of the program allows health care professionals to maintain their career and personal commitments while in the program. The program focuses on developing health care managers and leaders who will be confident in making key financial, operational, and strategic decisions for their organizations.
The curriculum is designed around four core areas of management that are especially relevant to health care: development of marketing and business plans; quantifying strategy through financial analysis; implementing strategy by efficiently managing operations; and building efficient organizations for the long run, through intelligent work design, performance assessment, and employee incentives.
The curriculum is presented in a unique format that delivers the necessary depth of core business material while simultaneously applying that material to the health care industry. This is accomplished through the pairing of Simon’s core courses with health care management courses that develop applications of the core material. Each pair of courses (module) is delivered and taken simultaneously.
Logistics and Time Requirements
The medical management master’s is specifically designed to accommodate the busy schedules of physicians and medical professionals. The program consists of 30 credits and is offered on a part-time basis only.
During a typical school quarter, the medical management student enrolls in a core class that meets one night per week. During the same quarter, the student also takes a class on three separate weekends to cover the health care component of the module.
