University of Kentucky Announces Healthcare MBA Program

Back in mid-May, we wrote about the trend of physicians becoming CEOs, and leading the top hospitals in the nation. Not only has this become more common, but also, physicians pursuing the business aspect of healthcare through formal education. The University of Kentucky is the latest university to offer a Healthcare MBA, with a curriculum “specifically tailed for health care professionals, providing a strong foundation for a graduate excel in value-based health care and value-based reimbursement.” Also being offered through the Gatton College of Business and Economics is a Healthcare Graduate Certificate which offers “healthcare-specific” classes as opposed to a more comprehensive and holistic business education one would find with the Healthcare MBA. Both are promising opportunities for healthcare professionals looking to meet the demands of the rapidly evolving healthcare industry.
