Rutgers Business School Executive Education announced Wednesday it is offering a mini-MBA for health care providers and administrators in medical practices in New Brunswick starting in May.
The mini-MBA: Strategic Healthcare Management for Practices program will address unmet needs in the health care industry, said program manager Jennie Fine.
"Health care practices are small businesses, and the reality is that operational or compliance-related inefficiencies are a drain on time and resources," Fine said.
"Educating health care professionals about the many elements of effective practice management allows them to implement streamlined processes and ensure compliance ultimately allowing them to focus on their most important goal — patient care," she said.
Health care professionals in the program, which starts May 10 and takes place for five consecutive Wednesdays, will benefit by gaining real-world knowledge of today’s practice management. The course offers a holistic view of today’s current health care environment, starting with an overview of the rapidly changing U.S. health care industry.
"In this era of ever-expanding healthcare institutions, the mini-MBA educates health care providers and managers about the implications of joining a larger organization, and provides the tools for effectively understanding evolving regulations on any scale," Fine said.
Applications are currently being accepted.
