Health Care Policy Courses

Updates and details on our Fall 2020 online health care policy course are available here: Executive MBA Health.


Health Care Policy

Health care is the largest sector of the U.S. economy, and also the sector with perhaps the deepest and most complex involvement of government throughout. Current and future health care executives, entrepreneurs, and professionals increasingly need to understand how government and public policy processes work, what are the key policy issues and trends, and how they can more effectively navigate this complicated environment. The Washington Campus customized and open-enrollment health care policy courses enable participants to interact first-hand with health care policy makers, regulators, and other experts who share their uniquely valuable insights with those interested and involved in health care.
