Master of Science in Healthcare Management

About the Master of Science in Healthcare Management


The Division of Management blends the unique management and planning expertise within the M.S. in Healthcare Management faculty with those of recognized professionals in the healthcare community.

All courses are offered online with two mandatory face-to-face on-campus classes per term.

  • If you register for a Friday class you would have 10-11 weeks of online coursework and would come to the OHSU Marquam Hill or South Waterfront campus on two Fridays from 4pm-9pm. 
  • If you registered for a Saturday class you would have 10-11 weeks of online coursework and would come to the OHSU Marquam Hill or South Waterfront campus on two Saturdays from 9am-2pm. 
  • The face to face classes are usually (not always-schedule depends on room availability) around the second week of term and the 8th week of term. 
  • Usually Friday and Saturday classes are held on the same weekends so that students taking two classes may only have to come to campus for two weekends a term.

Tuition is currently $550 per credit hour. 

All of the courses (with admissable GPA) in the Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Management are transferable to the MS in Healthcare Management. Graduate Certificate courses are marked with an asterisk (*).
