Health care is about more than taking care of the sick; it’s about giving people the opportunity to live better lives. Our current system faces too many disparities that rob communities of this opportunity, with many people lacking access to quality care. We need healthcare leaders who can create a more accessible and effective healthcare system for everyone. Whether you attend class online or on campus, the Master of Health Administration (MHA) at the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine will teach you the tactics you need to lead equitable transformations in health care, improve community health, and empower people to live better lives regardless of race, gender, or economic standing.
