Mission Statement

The UF MHA program develops engaged early health care careerists to use evidence-based strategies to improve healthcare quality, affordability, and access.  We provide students with fundamental knowledge using a cohort model in a campus-based setting that emphasizes experiential learning and data-driven problem solving both in the classroom and in the practice environment.  Students will develop proficiency to detect, analyze, manage and respond to critical administrative issues in both provider and non-provider healthcare organizations.  Our program embraces ethical conduct and professionalism, diversity and inclusion, practitioner involvement and team-based learning.  Faculty inform practice with research and service to the community.
