It's easy to start your application.
The Master of Health Care Operational Excellence (MHOE) from the Sever Institute at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis can help you advance with the knowledge, leadership and skills needed to establish, implement and oversee critical process analysis and continuous improvement initiatives in the growing field of health care.
From your first course and throughout the program, you will learn theories combined with real-world applications, strengthening your management acumen, collaborative problem solving, interpersonal communication and leadership competencies.
The 30-unit (10-course) MHOE is intended for practitioners and process managers in the health care industry. Students in this program will enable health care professionals to lead teams and significant initiatives in an operational excellence environment.
A 15-unit (five-course) graduate certificate in Health Care Operational Excellence is also available and can be transferred into the degree program at any time. A graduate certificate is an excellent option for individuals wishing to advance their careers, with a shorter time commitment than a degree.
MHOE courses are available in evening and online formats, and are designed with input from employers, thought leaders and practitioners, and taught by leading health care professionals, experts and executives.
Students learn project management fundamentals, navigating organizational change, service and finance, and emerging issues in health care and related service organizations. The program also addresses the more nuanced human factors and topics of personal leadership and resilience.
Qualified veterans: WashU McKelvey School of Engineering and the VA will cover 100 percent of your graduate tuition.
Although certificate programs do not qualify for federal loan programs, loans are still available for the master's degrees. For more information, contact Johanna Sengheiser (firstname.lastname@example.org).
