Representatives from Vanderbilt's Owen Graduate School of Management will be in 202 Light Hall on Wednesday, Feb. 2, at 5:30 p.m., to meet with individuals interested in enrolling in this year's class for the Master of Management in Health Care program.

The Vanderbilt Master of Management in Health Care is a one-year program that equips health care professionals with the business fundamentals and decision-making skills to manage people, programs and processes in today's dynamic health care environment.

Students participate in core business courses one night each week, attend intensive health care industry-specific courses one weekend each month and work in teams on a health care strategy project throughout the program.

The Vanderbilt Master of Management in Health Care is designed to provide managers, health care practitioners, and other executives the business knowledge and management skills to move beyond the practice of medicine to the strategic leadership of health care organizations.
