Health Administration


The Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (IHPME) trains Canada’s future health leaders and researchers through its research and professional graduate degree programs and its involvement in a range of collaborative programs. Its unique interdisciplinary approach is ideally suited to today’s complex and rapidly changing health care landscape.

IHPME's professional degree programs provide individuals with the knowledge, skills, and strategic perspective necessary to assume leadership roles in the health care system. Faculty members are the foremost thinkers, researchers, and practitioners influencing our health care system today. Students are exposed to the latest evidence-informed research, thinking, and practice in the Health Administration program, leading to a Master of Health Science (MHSc). 

The Master of Health Science program is geared to health managers and professionals who wish to acquire a graduate education in health administration. The program’s modular format allows learners to complete the degree without interrupting their careers. The learning experience is further enhanced by practicum placements and a curriculum shaped by strong relationships with leaders and top-performing organizations.
