Online Health Programs

Don’t accept how healthcare is.
Challenge what it could be.

Rapid transformation is happening in healthcare — from the systems used to the standards set for patient care. It’s a defining moment in the field and requires leaders who seek to challenge themselves and the people around them to step up.

What the industry needs is strong health administrators to take charge and be the change. With a strategic balance of business acumen, communication management and tech savviness, Duquesne’s online Master of Health Administration can prepare you to redefine the future of healthcare.

Health administrators are made to make an impact — and you will be, too.
