Graduate Certificate in Medical Management

Revolutionary changes have shifted the demands for healthcare management. That’s why we created the Graduate Certificate in Medical Management.

This 12-month program is delivered 100% online.

Some might call it a “mini-MBA,” as the graduate certificate provides many benefits of an MBA with a lower investment and shorter time commitment. If an MBA is part of your plan, you can carry your credits into the top-ranked Evening MBA Program.

Students in the Graduate Certificate in Medical Management Program represent all aspects of healthcare—from nurses to practice managers to physical therapists and care coordinators to hospital marketing professionals and healthcare administrators. This unique blend of frontline and administrative backgrounds creates an environment for productive classroom discussions with diverse perspectives on how to address the challenges of healthcare.
