Certificate in Health Care Policy and Administration

Format: On Campus

Effective Fall 2018, the Murphy Institute will become the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies and the Certificate in Health Care Policy and Administration will no longer be offered at the CUNY School of Professional Studies.

The Certificate in Health Care Policy and Administration provides a basic academic foundation for the professional development of workers in New York City's health care industry. An important professional credential, the certificate offers health care employees in both public and private health care systems an opportunity to advance their careers and serve the public more effectively.

Students gain a rich understanding of the theory and practice of health care policy and administration while developing advanced analytic, research, writing and presentation skills.

Career Prospects

The certificate is a valuable educational and professional credential for those working in government, non-profit organizations, and the private health care system. It is ideal for those currently employed within the field or interested in pursuing careers as health care managers and administrators, as well as public policy analysts and advocates.

The program is offered through CUNY SPS’s Joseph S. Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies.
