About the MS Program in Health Care Delivery Leadership

The health care delivery sector is undergoing rapid disruption driven by the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, downward pricing pressures, technological advancements, and the need to demonstrate increased quality outcomes. As a health care leader, you are tasked with creating new models and approaches for delivering high quality, efficient, and cost-effective care in an increasingly complex landscape.

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai developed its new MS Program in Health Care Delivery Leadership to help you meet these exciting challenges. Unlike other programs that are overly focused on the theoretical, this 21-month degree program is being offered at the frontlines of health care delivery innovation. The rigorous curriculum is delivered by our world-class faculty through a combination of online classes, on-site seminar sessions, and projects in which you apply what you’ve learned at your own home institution.

Offered by the Department of Population Health Science and Policy in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, the program will leverage the vast resources of the newly-formed Mount Sinai Health System. Students can expect direct access to our faculty experts, many of whom are national leaders in health care reform. They will receive extensive leadership training and education in areas such as operations management, strategic planning and communications, health policy, data and technology leveraging, clinical innovations, health care economics, and finance.

Additional program benefits:

  • Mentoring by Mount Sinai’s innovative leadership and faculty in conducting a strategic improvement project
  • Access and networking with industry experts and Mount Sinai alumni
  • Personal leadership development experiences including self-assessments
  • Training and ongoing technical support to fully leverage the online learning experience
  • A learning management system that affords flexibility and convenience in completing engaging course work

Upon completing the program, you will be better equipped to successfully manage and lead heath care delivery organizations, drive change, solve complex problems, and create dynamic new approaches that will improve the quality, value, and cost of patient care.
