The goal of the program is to train graduates who will take positions of clinical and administrative leadership in various health care centers, apply principles of excellence in providing evidence-based quality care to individuals, groups, and communities; view their work through a system-wide perspective; and initiate organizational changes while collaborating with multi-disciplinary teams in order to improve processes and treatment outcomes.
