“I found the Mitchell Hamline Law and Leadership in Healthcare Administration Certificate to be very valuable. Each module discussed information that is directly applicable to my current job. There were many great takeaways that help my daily workflow.” Bonnie J. Flom, CMRS
“This program offers more in-depth understanding of healthcare laws and how those laws change the way healthcare organizations receive reimbursement. As a healthcare manager, it is important to understand each law and how it affects your organization as a whole. MBA programs focus a little on the laws, but this program goes more in-depth with the vital facts each manager needs to know. Every healthcare manager should be required to take this course.” Kay Miller, Fall 2018 certificate graduate
