DEVELOPMENT AND CAREER
WSU Spokane MHPA program

WSU SPOKANE MASTER OF
HEALTH POLICY AND ADMINISTRATION

The Master of Health Policy and Administration (MHPA) degree is a vigorous, CAHME accredited, and personalized program that prepares future leaders in the dynamic and growing field of healthcare management. WSU HPA students enjoy small class sizes (12-20 students), which facilitate opportunities for strong and lasting relationships with both peers and professors. Students are required to participate in individual and group based projects and be actively engaged in class discussions. Additionally, students are provided valuable professional connections by networking with local healthcare professionals through site visits, guest lectures, student body events, and alumni events. 

A hallmark of the MHPA program is the completion of an internship. The required internship allows the student to gain leadership experience in the health care environment, explore the field, develop professional contacts, and contribute to career planning. The Department of Health Policy & Administration will help the student find an internship that meets your needs, or the student may arrange their own internship.  

Graduates of the program work in a wide range of career fields including hospital management, public health, managed care, group practice management, and financial management. Since 2013, 90% of WSU MHPA graduates secured employment within 3 months of graduation!

The program is ideal for working health care professionals who want to enhance their management skills or advance to management positions. To attract and accommodate our working professional students, our classes are offered from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., four days a week. Additionally, the program accommodates both full-time and part-time students. 

WSU Spokane’s Department of Health Policy and Administration is a proud member of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) which provides waivers for out-of-state tuition in 16 states. For more information regarding WICHE, please visit www.wiche.edu.

Upcoming Events

We have a number of events planned for 2016 and more are coming!

 

WSHEF welcomes new Puget Sound Chapter of the Asian Healthcare Leaders Forum (AHLF) to the region!

 

In February of 2016, the American College of Healthcare Executives launched the Asian Healthcare Leaders Forum (AHLF) as a community within ACHE as a part of their ongoing commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in healthcare leadership.  AHLF aims to increase representation of Asian-Americans in healthcare management through professional development, continual learning, mentorship, and networking. Any ACHE member can join AHLF by going to http://www.ache.org/newclub/forums/AHLF/index.cfm and submitting a short online application. Forum annual dues fees are $100.

 

Please contact Paul Myoung at paul.myoung@swedish.org for more information about AHLF, a list of current AHLF members, signing up for the AHLF newsletter, and ways to become involved in the local Puget Sound Chapter. 

 

AHLF and WSHEF are planning a welcome, education and networking event for November of 2016.  Be on the lookout for an email invitation with more details in the coming weeks!
