Upon completion of the certificate program, students will have knowledge and skills in the following areas: strategic planning, budgeting and finance, health care economics and policy, and advanced health care services administration.
The Health Administration (Certificate NDP) program from University of Arizona is comprised of five courses (for a total of 15 credits) and courses are offered to students on both the Tucson and Phoenix MEZCOPH campuses (NOTE: with the exception of one course, in-person attendance is required for students, so this is not an online or correspondence program).
The time needed to complete the certificate requirements largely depends on a student’s existing commitments at entry to the program and especially the support the student has from his/her supervisor or employer to participate in the program. Students are strongly encouraged to secure sufficient support to complete the program within one to two years.
Upon completion of the certificate, all five courses will be allowed to transfer to the Master of Public Health degree program if the student is admitted to the MPH program and the courses meet degree requirements.
