BGSU LAUNCHES NEW MASTER'S PROGRAM TO DEVELOP LEADERS IN HEALTH CARE
Health care is one of the fastest growing industries today, and Bowling Green State University is positioning working professionals and students in the College of Health and Human Services (HHS) to be leaders in the field.
BGSU is launching the Master of Health Services Administration (MHSA) degree program today (Jan. 28), at the start of spring semester.
The program prepares professionals for leadership positions in the complex, rapidly changing structure and financing of health care and health-service organizations. With real world internships and coursework taught by faculty and working leaders of health organizations, the program prepares graduates with the business, technological, public health and leadership foundations to lead health services organizations.
The program is a blend of online and in-person classes that will serve the needs of working professionals in health service organizations seeking to advance in the field, as well as recent graduates of health care administration, public health and allied health degrees.
"This program is for anyone who sees themselves in a leadership position in a hospital or a health care setting," said Dr. Philip Welch, assistant professor and graduate coordinator for HHS. "There are jobs available for people with a bachelor's degree, but if you want a manager or leadership role in the health care industry, you're eventually going to need a master's degree.
