Faculty and Staff
SHM faculty are dedicated instructors who have been carefully recruited to meet and exceed our programs' academic goals and mission to educate health managers.
Having diverse academic and working backgrounds in management and healthcare fields, 85 percent of our instructors hold doctoral degrees. Their academic areas of interest include healthcare law, the economics of medical care, organizational theory and its effect in the health industry, health policy, the financing of healthcare, effectiveness/cost-benefit analysis in the healthcare industry, health information systems, quantitative methods, and management science.
It is the intent of SHM and its faculty to maximize the educational experiences and opportunities for students. As a graduate school, SHM expects its students to take an active role in managing their learning and career path. Faculty support students through email, chat, forum postings, and phone. They serve as facilitators and mentors, assisting students in meeting objectives, applying key concepts to real-world situations, and developing the skills needed for success in the healthcare industry.
