Be a health care professional

September 30, 2010 —

Health care is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States and you don’t have to be a doctor to be part of it. Business professionals are needed to work in health services administration. Their role is to increase efficiencies in health service delivery. A master in health care administration will prepare you to be a leader in today’s ever-changing health care environment.

DMU’s master of health care administration program is geared toward working professionals with classes available online as well as on campus evening and weekend courses. The program emphasizes effective management and responsible oversight within the health care delivery system. The program is one of only two M.H.A. programs in the state that is a member of the Association of University Programs in Healthcare Administration (AUPHA).

With an M.H.A. from DMU you will be equipped for administrative positions in hospitals, long-term care facilities, health insurance companies, pharmaceuticals companies and local, state of federal government work. One of our alums, Sarah Pavelka, M.H.A.’01, is a senior staff member at the Iowa Quality Center in Marion, IA, where she is a health care consultant. She travels to health care organizations around the state and helps them with their organizational development.

October 4 is the deadline to apply for classes starting in January. Learn more about admissions requirements and how to apply. Many of our students get a dual degree in public health. Learn about our master of public health program and how some of our graduates are using their degrees.


Andrea Cooley gets paid to post on Facebook and Twitter (among other things) to promote Des Moines University to prospective students. She is a Midwest girl at heart, but loves to travel around the country visiting friends and family. If Des Moines had mountains or an ocean she’d never leave. Before joining the DMU marketing team, she was an editor for Country Home magazine. She’s still a little obsessed with magazines, so if you want to talk about decorating, remodeling or gardening projects she’s your go-to girl.
