Curriculum

Healthcare Management Curriculum

The healthcare management curriculum is comprised 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 medical practice. A different class is offered every two months, and classes may be started at any time and taken in any order.

The healthcare management curriculum includes: 

Master of Science in Healthcare Management

Each 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.
