Master Certificate in Health Care Practice Management

Master Certificate in Health Care Practice Management

15 credit hours | 1 year, 9-week classes | Online | Prerequisites not required

The Master Certificate in Healthcare Practice Management comprises 15 hours of academic, transcripted credit that can stand alone as a Master Certificate, or be used toward the 36 credit hour requirements of the Professional MBA program. 

Classes begin in August 2017

Overview

• Graduate-level and for academic credit Master Certificate sequence of five, 3-credit hour courses: a fifteen credit hour graduate-level academic certificate. Each course is equivalent to courses in the Meinders’ MBA and satisfies all requirements for 3-credit hours of transcripted graduate credit.
• Each course is closely modeled after existing courses taught in the MBA degree program, but with a more specific healthcare administration focus and application.
• Each of the five courses making up this master-level certificate program are designed to be one-to-one course equivalents for specific courses comprising the Meinders MBA. The academic credit earned through the satisfactory completion of the five certificate courses is transferable toward the equivalent MBA courses. Transferring the certificate program’s five courses (15-credit hours) toward their equivalent courses in the twelve course (36-credit hour) Meinders MBA effectively allows participants to also earn the MBA degree by completing the remaining seven MBA courses (21 credit hours).
• Courses focus on participants’ development and mastery of healthcare management knowledge and competencies. Competencies are aligned with the outcome competency models from National Center of Healthcare Leadership (NCHL) and Healthcare Leadership Alliance (HLA) as well as the results of a 2015 survey of practicing medical practitioners from across the state of Oklahoma.
• Program will be scheduled in a lockstep sequence taught in an accelerated 9-week course cycle. Participants focus on one specific course over each 9-week period allowing the five course program to be completed within a one-year period.
• Reflecting the realities of potential participants being spread across the state and region, the courses will be offered in a cohort-based, online format.
• Courses will be taught by a mixture of existing MSB faculty and professionals with relevant experiences in the healthcare sector. Faculty and instructors will be selected and appointed in a manner assuring that qualifications and credentials meet and exceed MSB and university accreditation requirements.
• This certificate program will be marketed statewide and regionally in partnership with the Oklahoma State Medical Association.

Admission Requirements

• Minimum of a completed bachelor degree from regionally accredited university with cumulative GPA ≥ 3.00.
• Two years or more of relevant, professional work experience preferred.
• Completion and submittal of the application for OCU Graduate Admission.
