Thanks to the Capstone Project component of Marlboro's HCA program, the four employees we supported with a partial tuition reimbursement provided tangible benefits to our institution hospital almost immediately. Each came out of the graduate program with a more sophisticated understanding of our organizational business processes and the knowledge of how to partner with line and managerial employees on quality and technology issues. In short they went from being managers to becoming leaders.

There is a shortage of experienced and highly-educated health care leaders. With a greater emphasis on health outcomes and major changes in provider reimbursement, there is a greater need for leaders and managers with the business skills to improve the quality of health care services, while simultaneously improving efficiency and cost-effectiveness. If you are a current health care manager or executive looking to improve your organization, increase employee retention and satisfaction, and reduce costs, please contact Joe Heslin, our Graduate Admissions Director, at (802) 258-9209 for detailed information to provide to your employees.
The HCA degree is designed for professionals like you. Classes meet face-to-face once a week and are supplemented by a robust online environment. Students benefit from the experience of our faculty of teacher-practitioners, who provide you with in-depth knowledge as well as a professional network to achieve success in your work.
36 credits are required for graduation.
