The Master of Health Administration (MHA) program at the University of Maryland will prepare graduates to manage the many complex health-related organizations including hospitals, long term care facilities, managed care organizations, rehabilitation agencies, public health clinics, state agencies, among others. With the impending retirement of the first wave of baby boomers, public health and health care organizations face large scale losses of middle and executive level administrators.
Public health and health services now comprise the largest industry in the United States, producing nearly one seventh of the United States’ gross national product. According to the World Health Report 2000, the health care system should be conceptualized as including not only health services, but also public health and social welfare activities. The Department of Health Services Administration adopts this integrated approach to address current health needs, provide leadership in a rapidly evolving health care industry, and anticipate future health challenges in an expanding global economy. The MHA program is considered to be equivalent to the MPH and is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).
