Students participate in three on-campus executive residencies during the program. Held on the DMU campus, these five-day residencies offer professional development that’s highly intensive and highly interactive. Sessions cover current issues in health care from leadership and quality assessment to governance, conflict resolution, and strategy formulation and implementation. Following the completion of an on campus residency, students return to work Monday with new skills that are directly applicable to their positions in management and leadership.
The first residency occurs at the beginning of the student’s course work, the second is at the end of block two course work, and the third is at the end of block three course work. Students will spend a total of 15 days on DMU’s campus while working toward completion of their M.H.A. degree.
The residencies are held each January and September, and are scheduled to run from Wednesday afternoon through Sunday morning. The majority of our students are employed, and we realize attending the residencies comes at a cost to your professional and personal lives. This schedule was developed to maximize your time on campus, while minimizing your time away from work.
