Health care managers, practitioners and executives looking to advance their careers and become robust organizational managers are invited to apply to the Vanderbilt Master of Management in Health Care (MMHC).

The one-year program at the Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management is tailored to health care professionals. Vanderbilt MMHC classes are held one night a week and one weekend a month. Students learn business fundamentals and interdisciplinary leadership skills in the context of the ever-evolving and complex health care delivery system. Health care industry leaders, such as elected officials, policy experts, CEOs, entrepreneurs and health care practitioners, bring their up-to-the-moment knowledge of the field to the classroom. The program culminates in a capstone project that engages students on a project of significant importance that is a current problem or initiative for a health care organization, which is often the student’s current company.

“The ideal candidates should aspire to a c-suite, chair or CMO position and be driven to make a positive impact in their organization,” said Owen School Director of Health Care Programs Burch Wood.

The Vanderbilt MMHC offers the opportunity for professionals to gain a strong peer network, access to the Owen Graduate School of Management’s first-rate health care database, interaction with top Vanderbilt faculty and access to Nashville and the nation’s premier health care industry thought leaders.

Applications are due June 1 and are encouraged from a range of industry professionals, including physicians, nurses, IT, marketing and finance professionals.
