Health Administration Program Information

The Master of Health Administration (M.H.A.) is a two-year, lock-step program with a summer internship between the first and second years.  Small class size permits individual attention and guidance from faculty members.  The program prepares qualified individuals motivated by a social mission and responsibility to the community for various management positions in the health services industry.  Organizations seek individuals who have the ability to solve business problems and build strategic relationships in a climate of continuous change. 

The UF M.H.A. program develops engaged early health care careerists to use evidence-based strategies to improve healthcare quality, affordability, and access. We provide students with fundamental knowledge using a cohort model in a campus-based setting that emphasizes experiential learning and data-driven problem solving both in the classroom and in the practice environment. Students will develop proficiency to detect, analyze, manage and respond to critical administrative issues in both provider and non-provider healthcare organizations. Our program embraces ethical conduct and professionalism, diversity and inclusion, practitioner involvement and team-based learning.  Faculty inform practice with research and service to the community.

Applicants from any undergraduate major are considered.  For more information about our program and details about the MBA/MHA dual degree, please see our website:
