As a part of the University of Kansas School of Medicine and Medical Center, we will work with our partners to improve health and health services delivery in the Kansas City metropolitan area, the State of Kansas, and the nation.
The University of Kansas Master of Health Services Administration Program prepares managers for a variety of roles in the health care sector. To do so the Program (1) recruits a diverse population of students with the ability to succeed; (2) seeks faculty with varied backgrounds who are committed to excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service; (3) organizes the curriculum around a set of competencies that stress life-long learning; (4) emphasizes interprofessional education opportunities with learners and practitioners from multiple disciplines; and (5) stresses the practical application of knowledge. The Program is set in an academic medical center in a major metropolitan area to facilitate interprofessional and experiential learning.
To further the mission of our department and to advance our commitment to life-long learning, both within and outside the classroom, we espouse the following core values.
