Accelerate your leadership in just 18 months

Created for working professionals, the Online MPH in Healthcare Management prepares students for the modern healthcare workplace. The program combines rigorous training in healthcare management with a unique focus on public health.

This fast-track, cohort program is designed to be completed in 18 months while working full-time, taking three classes a semester. Students advance through coursework with the same set of classmates, building strong and supportive relationships along the way. Classroom projects and learning assessments directly relate to workplace and job responsibilities.

Online program rooted in the Texas Medical Center

Our Online MPH offers the convenience of online courses from our campus within the Texas Medical Center—the world’s largest medical complex. At the start of the program, in August, students visit UTHealth School of Public Health’s Houston campus to meet their cohort and instructors, take a tour of Texas Medical Center and attend orientation. Students also attend final presentations and graduation in person. All other classwork is completed online–whenever or wherever is most convenient for you and your busy schedule.
