Working through Eller College departments, the Center for Management Innovations in Healthcare has developed concentrations and a menu of coursework focused on healthcare topics, available to undergraduate and graduate students.
Core and supplemental courses encompass the areas of accounting, economics, management and organizations, management information systems, and marketing.
The Eller College is offering an Undergraduate Certificate in Healthcare Management. The certificate allows students to develop industry-specific knowledge, positioning them for managerial careers in a broad range of health care and related organizations. Students are required to complete at least three of the core courses to earn the certificate.
Undergraduate students may also participate in experiential projects and internships in the health care domain. For example, a team of senior marketing majors recently conducted a market assessment at selected sites in the Southwestern United States for the organ transplant program in the Department of Surgery at the University of Arizona.
Eller MBA students have the option of a Healthcare Management Concentration. Students interested in this concentration need to take four core courses offered by CMIH faculty.
Eller master's students (MBA and MIS) may also choose to enrich their experience in the healthcare industry through participation in field projects. Field projects over the last four years have involved hospitals and health networks, medical devices, pharmacy benefit managers, and UA health science colleges.
Graduate students from other UA health science colleges (Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Public Health) may also participate as members of field project teams, expanding the interdisciplinary focus and opportunities.
