Student Reviews

Transitional Masters
Hisham Saeed rated 5 out of 5 stars

The topics are holistic, touches on many aspects of healthcare. That approach is good for people who are in the healthcare industry who don't know about the mangment side of healthcare and would like to transition into leadership or mangment roles. Only issue is the assignments and grading.
