Concurrent MHA/JD Degree Program
The overall goal of this concurrent degree program is to train professionals who will be especially suited to roles in health administration in which both legal and administrative expertise would be advantageous. It offers students the opportunity to combine in-depth professional educational training in health administration and law so that they will be prepared to work in both venues or in positions requiring an understanding of both. Graduates with the joint degree will not be limited to the traditional career opportunities of legal work in a law firm. They will have the ability to move more directly into administrative positions in government agencies and health care entities such as hospitals, health plans, and health service organizations. Similarly, graduates will possess legal skills that they can bring to health care entities and government agency professional positions.
