"Few programs match the strength of the Department of Health Policy and Management's course offerings, depth of practical knowledge among the faculty, or the diversity of its student population and alumni. Truly, the HP&M program at KUMC provides students with a meaningful and dynamic opportunity to learn from and interact with experienced professionals representing acute care hospitals, medical groups, health insurance companies, skilled nursing facilities, home care and hospice agencies, just to name a few. Such an environment is the perfect laboratory in which ambitious and determined individuals can expand their understanding of health services administration, establish lifelong personal relationships, and establish a strong foundation upon which to achieve amazing professional success."
"There are certain moments which serve as proverbial forks in the road along the path of life. My decision to pursue an MHSA at KUMC was the critical moment in my professional development that has led me down a path of professional success and personal fulfillment that would not be possible otherwise."
