Master of Health Care Leadership - Lenexa

The Master of Healthcare Leadership was the first master's-level degree specifically directed at leadership in healthcare administration in Wichita.

The program will prepare students for responsible positions of professional leadership in the healthcare environment. The coursework was developed by leaders in the healthcare industry and specifically designed to encompass all phases of healthcare leadership, including acute and long-term care, clinic and hospital management, and home health and hospice agencies. Students will complete 12 courses over a two-year period, attending class one night a week.

Information from various sources - including The Wall Street Journal, the American College of Healthcare Executives, the U.S. Bureau of Statistics, the Kansas Job Vacancy Survey, InformationWeek, the Greater Wichita Economic Development Coalition and the Wichita Eagle – recognizes healthcare as a growing industry. Some of the reasons for this growth include advances and changes in technology, managed health plans, issues related to aging, physician and hospital ventures, and other areas. Nationally, healthcare providers are recognizing the majority of middle- to upper-level managers as highly skilled clinicians, with limited financial, management and leadership skills. The industry as a whole is demanding more efficiency, including increased regulations. The curriculum was constructed with recommendation from many of the region's healthcare providers. The instructors include full-time faculty members at Friends University who have healthcare experience, as well as full-time practitioners in various disciplines in the healthcare industry.

If you would like to progress in the healthcare industry, this program will assist in developing the leadership skills necessary. Although appropriate for the CEO career track, this program accommodates professionals aspiring for director-level positions as well. The last module consists of an internship where you will experience firsthand a topic of study you find most interesting.

Program offered is a Master Degree.
