MS Program in Health Care Delivery Leadership
Health care delivery is undergoing rapid change. This change is only likely to accelerate in the coming decades. It demands innovative, highly-skilled leaders who can adapt and transform health care organizations to meet the challenges of this new era.
The new MS Program in Health Care Delivery Leadership at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is designed to meet that need. Unlike other programs that focus on the theoretical and are not necessarily health care specific, this 21-month degree program is being offered at the frontlines of health care delivery innovation. Delivered in a primarily asynchronous online format, the program will leverage the vast resources available through the newly-formed Mount Sinai Health System (one of the largest health systems in the US). It will provide students the competitive advantage required to provide strategic leadership in a changing landscape resulting from the Affordable Care Act, downward pricing pressures and the need to demonstrate increased quality outcomes.
Students can expect direct access to our Hospital and School faculty experts, many of whom are national leaders in health care reform. They will receive extensive leadership training and education in the areas of: change management, team-building, operations, finance, and mentorship through a dynamic online learning system that provides interaction with faculty and fellow students, and provides flexibility to accommodate busy schedules. This collaborative learning model, in addition to our onsite residency program, is designed to provide significant opportunity to further build and develop students’ professional networks.
Our curriculum is built upon the philosophy that effective and efficient solutions to current challenges in health care delivery require:
- Evidence-based approaches to decision making
- Revised strategic frameworks of thinking and implementation
- Holistic change management
- Deep understanding of complex health care reforms
A revolution is happening in health care today. Are you prepared?
