BJC | BJC employees interested in building on the management and leadership skills important to their role in the health care industry can do so by pursuing an advanced degree in the field through Webster University.
Applications are now being accepted for Webster’s master’s degree in health administration program (MHA) offered in partnership with the BJC Institute for Learning and Development (BILD).
The ninth MHA cohort will meet on Wednesday evenings starting in March.
“An MHA is a great degree for those who want to strengthen their knowledge of the health care industry and equip themselves to efficiently and effectively face the challenges of administration,” says Beth Camp, BILD senior learning and development consultant.
Students in the MHA cohort study topics in such areas as health administration law, health care financial management, human resources management and statistics.
“Obtaining my MHA through Webster University was a challenging yet rewarding experience,” says Bivek Shukla, MHA, MBA, an MHA graduate and inventory systems coordinator in surgical services at Christian Hospital. “The knowledge and skills that I gained through the program are invaluable and will help me to become a better contributor in process improvements within the supply chain environment.”
The program can be completed in less than three years, and is made up of nine-week classes, which meet one night a week. Employees work together in a cohort where they learn not only from the Webster faculty, but also from one another.
Shukla encourages fellow BJC employees to learn more about the Webster MHA program.
“I would recommend this program to all those who wish to acquire new knowledge to broaden their effectiveness in health care operations and adapt efficiently to the rapidly growing health care industry,” Shukla says. “I appreciate BJC providing me with this opportunity, as it helps develop my ability to help with our mission to take great care of patients.”
BJC offers tuition reimbursement for benefits-eligible employees to help offset some of the financial challenges, Camp adds.
