The MHA@GW curriculum

The multidisciplinary curriculum concentrates on core principles of healthcare management, health economics, financial leadership, and policy. MHA@GW focuses on enhancing the skill sets necessary for successful health organization leadership, including: Leadership and ethics, Management and strategy, Information technology and decisions science, Community health and quantitative methods, Finances and economics, Quality improvement, and Law and regulation. The program includes eight 10-week learning modules. Below are two such modules:

  • Module Three — Health Care Financial Management: This module provides an understanding of the financial operations of health care organizations including financial reporting, cost management, sources of revenue and budgeting in health care organizations. It will focus on the theory and application of health care finance as it applies to health care organizations. The module includes specific emphasis on CFO responsibilities, revenue cycle, coding, reimbursement mechanisms, managed care contracting, personnel expenses, supply chain and materials management.
  • Module Six — Quality and Performance Improvement: Effective health care leaders understand that quality improvement tools and methods must be at the heart of every health care organization. Whether it is the quality of clinical care and patient safety, driving out waste and excessive cost or striving to deliver the most cost-effective care possible, quality improvement must be part of the skill set of every health care leader. From the principles of W. Edwards Deming’s statistical process control to the six sigma and Toyota-style production models, quality improvement is and will continue to be the yardstick by which outstanding health care organizations are measured.
