Curriculum

Healthcare Leadership and Management Curriculum

The healthcare  curriculum is composed of nine residential classes, each dealing with an essential competency of physician leadership.  Classes meet in Dallas in focused 4-day sessions—Saturday through Tuesday—to minimize time away from practice. A different class is offered every two months, and classes may be started at any time and taken in any order.

The curriculum includes: 

Master of Science in Healthcare Leadership & Management

The Master of Science in Healthcare Leadership & Management is the business degree of choice for most physician leaders.

Each 4-day residential class is eligible for 4 semester hours of graduate academic credit and 32 hours of AMA PRA Category 1™ credit toward the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award.

Healthcare Management Executive MBA

The Healthcare Management Executive MBA is a general business degree preferred by those physicians who wish to transition into an executive leadership role.
