About the course

Healthcare providers chose their field because they want to care for patients. Today’s reality, however, is that care is provided within a complex system of non-clinical context. To be truly effective as a healthcare provider or administrator, professionals must understand current and evolving legislation, regulation, and payment models. Running a healthcare practice or serving in a hospital or healthcare system also requires foundational understanding of general business theories in economics and sound financial decision making.

The Mini-MBA: Healthcare Management offers a unique opportunity for clinicians and administrators to learn about topics such as legal issues in healthcare, new standards of quality and accountability, and how to streamline back-end operations. Understanding these interrelated topics will equip you to achieve compliance, institute back-end procedures that run smoothly and effectively, and focus on what you do best—caring for your patients.


  • Stay up to date on the rapidly evolving relationship between providers, patients and payers
  • Understand new standards of quality and accountability in medical care
  • Learn how to institute best-practices for running the back-end of a medical practice smoothly
  • Meet real world experts who have robust experience in medical administration, as well as expert business faculty
  • Gain foundational knowledge in economics and financial decision making tools


  • Be more knowledgeable about the non-clinical context in which healthcare is provided
  • Gain important insight into models of care and reimbursement
  • Understand why the healthcare world is changing so rapidly, and what is yet to come
  • Learn to establish policies for effective healthcare management, particularly in areas of legal and financial concerns
  • Learn about best practices in medical office management, leaving you better able to focus on patient care


This flexible, online program will give medical practice professionals the knowledge you need to continue an independent practice with proper business management as well as high-quality patient care. Topics include:

  • Healthcare Dynamics: an overview of the US healthcare system, including evolving trends and future changes
  • Legal Considerations for Healthcare Practices: gain a foundational background in legal and regulatory issues related to medical records, advertising and marketing, adverse effect reporting and employment records

This program is an intense, short-duration commitment designed to accommodate the demanding schedules of those in the medical field.
