Graduate Certificate Program
in Health Management (CHM)
Core requirements of a degree program can not be counted toward a graduate certificate.
MHA program students will not be eligible for the certificate.
MPH program students may use HSMGMT 510 instead of HSMGMT 560 to satisfy the management course requirement for the MPH degree, but will then need to add an elective course to satisfy the credit requirement for the certificate.

The Graduate Certificate in Health Management program serves students with an interest in additional academic training in management and leadership aspects of health care and public health organizations and systems. Most Master of Public Health (MPH) graduates find that development of basic management skills and competencies is essential for progressing in operational and managerial roles within health care and public health programs, organizations, and systems. Graduates will obtain basic core competencies around management, personal leadership, and health care financial management.
Certificate students must be enrolled in a UW graduate degree program with priority given to students in the Department of Health Services and the Department of Global Health. Students from other departments and schools will be considered on a space-available basis.
