The Master of Health Administration program at the MU School of Medicine has been named to the inaugural class of the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) Mentorship Circle (CMC). It is one of only 14 programs nationwide to receive the honor.

“CAHME Mentorship Circle status is an honor and a responsibility,” said Anthony Stanowski, DHA, FACHE, president and chief executive officer of CAHME. “It requires extra effort by programs, but rewards that extra effort by providing these programs with additional recognition that speaks to their dedication to the field of health care management education.”

The CMC designation was established to recognize programs that — in addition to achieving the high standards of CAHME accreditation — engage in a variety of activities that help to extend CAHME’s mission of advancing the quality of graduate health care management education. CMC status recognizes that programs provide opportunities to other students and other programs to advance their own experiences and skills — for the good of the entire health care field.

“The MHA program in the Department of Health Management and Informatics (HMI) at the MU School of Medicine provides quality graduate health care management education with innovations in health informatics,” said Sue Boren, PhD, MHA, associate professor and director of academic programs in the HMI department. “Our graduates are capable of leading health care organizations effectively and efficiently to improve the health of populations. We’re honored to be named among CAHME’s inaugural CMC class.”
