TUCSON, Ariz.Feb. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The first cohort of students officially started the new Master of Science in Organizational Leadership program at Pima Medical Institute, February 3. The program offers students two specialization options – public health administration and health care administration.
This is the first master’s degree program offered by Pima Medical. The health care career college, founded in Tucson, Arizona, has been educating students since 1972. This new program is an advanced degree and is best suited for people looking for leadership roles. Each specialization equips students with the practical and analytical tools needed to successfully lead organizations through today’s many challenges.
In the works for some time, the degree program’s wide-ranging scope and breadth of knowledge made it an ideal fit for Pima Medical.
“We have had a good share of students express interest in moving on to a master’s degree and this program offers them a chance to build the skills needed to manage teams, as well as those required for global management positions,” said John Streit, Ed.D, Master of Science in Organizational Leadership Program Director. “After much research, feedback from our advisory committee and market surveys, we determined that a broad approach would provide the best opportunities for our graduates.”
Pima Medical currently offers associate and a bachelor’s degree programs in health care administration. For students on the health care administration track, they can foreseeably complete multiple degrees and be in the field working, before many who might take a traditional university approach. The public health specialization is new for Pima Medical.
“At Pima Medical, we are always looking for ways to advance career and earning opportunities for our students and alumni,” said Fred Freedman, President and CEO, Pima Medical Institute. “Healthcare is at the epicenter of the seismic post-COVID shift in job opportunities. We have developed programs that offer a wider variety of career prospects for healthcare professionals to accelerate their momentum.”
The Master of Science in Organizational Leadership is an addition to an already robust, fully online curriculum. Pima Medical offers multiple bachelor’s degree programs as well as an associate degree in health care administration.
