Rutgers Executive Education offers Mini-MBA for healthcare providers

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Rutgers Business School Executive Education  is offering its Mini-MBA™: Strategic Healthcare Management for Practices program in New Brunswick on five consecutive Wednesdays starting May 10, 2017.

In addition to clinical expertise, contemporary healthcare professionals and managers need to understand rapidly evolving regulatory requirements, standards of quality and accountability, and the mindset of contemporary patients. Understanding the fundamentals of accounting, business and law as they apply to the field is also critical in today’s complex healthcare environment. 

"This Mini-MBA: Strategic Healthcare Management for Practices addresses an unmet need in the healthcare industry," said Program Manager Jennie Fine. "Healthcare practices are small businesses, and the reality is that operational or compliance-related inefficiencies are a drain on time and resources."

"Educating healthcare professionals about the many elements of effective practice management allows them to implement streamlined processes and ensure compliance ultimately allowing them to focus on their most important goal – patient care," Fine said.

Healthcare providers and administrators will benefit from this program by gaining a real-world picture of the key elements of today’s practice management, allowing them to make business and operational decisions to support excellent patient care. The course offers a holistic view of today’s current healthcare environment, starting with an overview of the rapidly changing U.S. healthcare system. 

Participants will gain a deeper understanding of current considerations in healthcare inclusive of principles of business, law and accounting, recent U.S. healthcare reform, and key factors in deciding when to remain independent or to join a larger practice or healthcare system. 

"In this era of ever-expanding healthcare institutions, the Mini-MBA educates healthcare providers and managers about the implications of joining a larger organization, and provides the tools for effectively understanding evolving regulations on any scale,” Fine said.

Applications for the Mini-MBA™: Strategic Healthcare Management for Practices program are now being accepted.  For more information, please feel free to contact Jennie Fine, program manager at: 848-445-9418 or by email: jfine@business.rutgers.edu.
