Program and Degree Name Change - CPM to MSHA
In order to more fully recognize and describe the current curriculum and content in
the program, the MSCPM program changed to the Master of Science in Healthcare Administration
(MSHA) effective September 1, 2016. The Master of Science in Clinical Practice Management
(MSCPM) program initially began as degree geared towards those in outpatient and physician
practice settings. As the academic equivalent to other well-known healthcare administration
graduate degrees, the MSCPM served as a uniquely-named alternative for healthcare
professionals seeking a master’s degree. It has since evolved into more of an overall
healthcare administration degree due to the nature of the students within the program
and the desired competencies and education that they are seeking in this degree program.
From its inception to the final graduating class in Spring 2016, hundreds of students
earned, and have benefitted from, their MSCPM degrees. This legacy will continue
through the Master of Science in Healthcare Administration (MSHA) program. We are
proud of our diverse alumni and look forward to continuing to provide exceptional
education for those currently working in or desiring to work in healthcare administration.
