Lead With Grace. Lead With Heart.

Healthcare administrators have a unique opportunity to lead outstanding patient care throughout the organization they serve. Lessons learned from unique patient experiences inform how administrators can improve the system as a whole, guided by the healing ministry of Christ.

With a master degree in healthcare administration, you will be prepared to serve patients and the community in a number of settings. You may follow a path that leads to an executive position, thinking about how your organization functions and how you work to improve the patient experience. You might choose to manage a private practice, ensuring your practice meets the standards of an ever-adapting medical landscape and developing relationships with physicians, nurses, team members and patients alike. Wherever your path leads, your foundation begins with us.

Of all the master degree healthcare administration programs, ours will teach you to apply the teachings of Christ to administrative decision-making and management. At AdventHealth University, we connect students with established and resourceful administrators, who will lead you through several competencies that prepare you for the rewarding and ever-changing field of healthcare leadership.
