The MHA program has close links to other faculties including the Faculty of Health Sciences and the Faculty of Medicine to assure relevance to clinical practice for health service administration.
The MHA program also has close links with hospitals, long-term care institutions, community health agencies, psychiatric institutions, federal and provincial governments, and international, national, and provincial health organizations to assure curricular relevance and excellence.
Moreover, the program maintains close ties with the Canadian College of Health Service Executives, the American College of Health Service Executives, and other professional bodies across North America. The emphasis in this program is on proactive management with a vision of humanistic leadership and public service in a period of intense change in health care systems around the world.
The MHA is closely allied to and aligned with the MBA program. MHA students take their core management courses with MBA students. The MHA aims to prepare students for the managerial and leadership responsibilities faced in rapidly changing health care environments.
The MHA program allows for full-time or part-time study, with the common core management courses (of the MBA) available in either English or French. The MHA health specialization courses are available only in English. The MHA requires an administrative residency of at least 16 weeks that expands the students' experience in health care or health policy and awareness of the applicability of the material covered in the academic portion of the program to the practical world of management of health care. Students can do their administrative residency, in English or in French, at any recognized and approved health agency.
