UW Executive MHA and Medical Management Programs
For your professional development!

The University of Washington’s Graduate Programs in Health Services Administration offers healthcare professionals two options for increasing their management and leadership skills: the Executive Master of Health Administration Program (MHA), and the Certificate Program in Medical Management (CPMM).

Both programs are designed for those who want to meet the need for skilled leaders in the ever-changing healthcare delivery system. Physicians, nurses, other experienced clinical practitioners, and health service managers enter these programs to become more effective leaders and meet the increasingly challenging expectations of the patients and families, stakeholders, and communities they serve.

The Executive MHA Program has a 24-month format that combines three-day intensive on-site meetings with teleconferencing, independent assignments and team projects. Applications for admission have an annual deadline of April 30. For details, visit: http://www.uwexecutivemha.org.  

The CPMM is a four-course program that takes place once a week from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. It begins with the autumn quarter, and ends the following autumn. Courses can be taken on a single-course enrollment basis, and include:


Medical Practice Quality Measurement and Management (autumn)

Strategic Management of Health Care Organizations (winter)

Leadership and Change Management (spring)

Health Services Financial Management (autumn)


Course credits may be applied toward the Executive MHA program.

For details, visit: http://www.pce.uw.edu/certificates/medical-management.html


To ask questions about either program, contact the program coordinator at mhap@u.washington.edu or 206-543-8778.
