BUFFALO, N.Y. — Seven medical professionals are now armed with the skills to improve the patient experience and the value of care their organizations deliver as graduates of the Executive Development in Health Care Management certificate program at the University at Buffalo School of Management.
The following individuals received their certificates during a ceremony on Nov. 18 at the UB Downtown Gateway Building:
In the four-part Executive Development in Health Care Management certificate program, physicians and other clinicians hone their business and leadership skills to make sound financial decisions, effectively manage their teams and ultimately improve patient care within their organization.
In a series of biweekly half- or full-day sessions, participants discuss health care trends, economics and policies, and learn about budgeting and accounting, operations management, negotiation techniques and innovative models of health care delivery. In addition, they identify their strengths and weaknesses and enhance their leadership skills, leaving them better equipped to motivate their teams and manage change within their organizations.
“More and more health care professionals recognize the value of strong business skills in reducing costs, leading effective organizations and improving patient outcomes,” says Paul Tesluk, dean of the UB School of Management. “With the skills and knowledge the graduates have acquired through this program, they can have an immediate impact on their organizations and the population they serve. Congratulations to these impressive individuals on their accomplishment.”
The certificate program is part of a robust and growing portfolio of health care management offerings from the UB School of Management. Other school initiatives include an Accelerated MBA for Residents and Fellows program, a health care management concentration for MBA students, customized corporate programs in health care, and several dual-degree programs in which students simultaneously earn an MBA and a graduate degree in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, social work, public health or audiology.
The next session of the Executive Development in Health Care certificate program begins in May. For more information, visit mgt.buffalo.edu/exechealth or contact the School of Management’s Center for Executive Development at 716-645-3200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
