Generalist Curriculum

The curriculum consists of 56 credit hours of required courses, which includes three credit hours of electives, and an internship of 2 credits.

This course of study requires two years for full-time students and at least three years of study for part-time students. The curriculum includes course work in health systems, finance, policy, information systems, epidemiology, outcomes management, reimbursement and other areas related to the delivery, financing and organization of health care and services. To strengthen students’ understanding of practice, most courses combine theory and experiential learning, with projects in health care organizations being common.

An internship is required of all students. To complete the internship, students must work in conjunction with a mentor in a health care setting. Most students complete the internship between their first and second years of study.
