Lipscomb Launches MHA Program


 

Last month, Lipscomb University officials announced the launch of Nashville's first Master of Health Administration program. The new MHA program is specifically designed to help mid-careerist build their skill set for healthcare leadership roles through an integrated, interactive, immersive curriculum.

The administration of Lipscomb University's College of Business developed the new graduate program after collaborating with an executive advisory board for nearly two years to develop the institution's Master of Management in Health Care program and now the Master of Health Administration degree. The advisory board is comprised of 17 industry executives including senior leaders of hospitals and health systems, health technology companies, outpatient clinics, home health agencies, healthcare support services, and allied industry professionals that intersect with healthcare including information technology, human resources and finance.

"Healthcare education is a major focus at Lipscomb University, and it is important to not only train the healthcare practitioners at the highest level but also those who are leading these organizations, so they are meeting the needs of their patients, clients and customers effectively," said Ray Eldridge, dean of Lipscomb's College of Business. "This program takes an innovative look at not only how healthcare works today, but where it is going in the future."

"There is a need for young professionals to be prepared at the highest level to lead the healthcare organizations of tomorrow especially in a healthcare hub such as Nashville," said Mitch Edgeworth, CEO of adult hospitals and clinics at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. "Lipscomb has made a tremendous impact in healthcare education for generations, preparing its graduates for medical school, careers in healthcare and many other fields. The new Master of Health Administration degree blends that solid program with Lipscomb's College of Business for an integrated program that will equip its graduates with the skills to solve problems creatively, lead organizations and teams effectively and drive disruptive change in health care."

Bart Liddle, assistant dean in Lipscomb's College of Business, said students will visit with industry leaders across the continuum of care in their environments expanding the traditional borders of the classroom. "Classes could be held at hospitals, in a corporate office or at the state capitol among other locations depending on the topic of study. Examining how the various aspects of healthcare work together is also a key component of the program," he said.

In addition to targeting mid-careerists, the new MHA degree is also designed for clinicians who want to learn the business of healthcare and progress in leadership roles within their organizations, as well as individuals from non-health care industries who want to transition their experience and skills to a career in healthcare. Courses are offered in a hybrid of in-person and online format and may be completed in six semesters. Classes will begin in Fall 2019.
