Personal statement: "I believe that the application of sound management practices within healthcare organizations can do much to achieve the Triple Aim of healthcare, which is to improve the individual experience of healthcare, improve the health of populations, and reduce the per capita cost of healthcare. We have designed the MBA in Healthcare Management and the Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Management with these goals in mind."
