The admission philosophy of the UW MHA Program is directly aligned with our Vision of preparing innovative and effective health care system managers who are transformational leaders. The Program provides fundamental health care management training and the basis for career-long development and personal mastery of transformational leadership skills through a rigorous and team-oriented course of study.
The UW MHA Program seeks to recruit highly qualified, committed students with the potential to excel academically and professionally. We seek evidence in each application of an individual's academic background, intellectual capacity, and overall life and work experience, particularly related to leadership and professional development. The UW MHA Program demands intellectual rigor, professionalism, an orientation toward leadership and action, and an ability to integrate paradigm, theory, and evidence.
