Executive Master of Healthcare Leadership

Transforming Leaders. Transforming Healthcare.

Healthcare is undergoing rapid, disruptive and persistent change, and the public debate on cost, quality, and access to care continues. Visionary leaders are essential to transform our healthcare organizations and to deliver outstanding products and services in this dynamic environment.

The Brown University Executive Master of Healthcare Leadership prepares these leaders to transform healthcare. This 16-month intensive degree program is designed for clinicians, executives, senior administrators, and others who have significant responsibility in the healthcare industry; including those from health care delivery, public health, drug and product manufacturing, health care consulting, health management systems, insurance, patient advocacy, and from legal, policy and regulatory settings.  The program blends residential and online learning, allowing participants to work full time while pursuing an advanced degree.

Participants in the program benefit from Brown’s strength in public health, public policy, health economics, and evidence-based medicine. They examine the conditions and limitations of healthcare systems around the world and confront the challenges of reformulating them. Progressing through the program as a cohort, highly accomplished participants contribute significantly to peer-to-peer learning while working closely with expert faculty.

Executive Master of Healthcare Leadership graduates are well-positioned to lead in the clinical, corporate, and public sectors; to interpret and use data for sound decision making; and to promote outstanding health care for patients as well as financial health for their organizations. Through the program, they gain a comprehensive perspective that goes beyond local concerns, and develop the knowledge and skills to create flexible, responsive and sustainable organizations across the healthcare industry.
