The U.S. health care system is facing major challenges including pandemics, workforce shortages, health disparities and inequity, rising costs and more. Highly skilled health professionals are critically needed to help develop innovative solutions and transform care delivery.
In response to this need, the University of Southern California has launched a Master of Science program in health systems management engineering (HSME), the first of its kind on the West Coast. Offered by the Viterbi School of Engineering in conjunction with Keck School of Medicine and Price School of Public Policy, the program enables graduates to reimagine and re-engineer how health care is delivered — achieving better patient outcomes. The MS in HSME is geared toward physicians, nurses, data and IT professionals, quality improvement and patient safety specialists, and other administrative and operations staff interested in leading this transformation.
Students can customize classes to individual interests and attend remotely, in person or in a hybrid format. To learn more and apply, please visit the program web page or contact Dr. David Belson, program director, at Belson@usc.edu.
