Overview

This combination of degrees equips LIM students with an invaluable understanding of the business of healthcare. As healthcare spending continues to rise—up to 18 percent of U.S. GDP in 2015 from 13 percent in 1995—physician leaders will face increased pressure to manage costs while keeping pace with technological advances and ever-evolving policy. 

LIM graduates will be poised to address these challenges and play a leadership role in transforming healthcare delivery.
