UT Dallas makes the process as simple as possible, offering evening classes and online options so students can continue a full-time career while earning their degree. And with a field that changes so constantly, creating well-educated and flexible leaders is more important ever. “Like Professor Fleming says, they’re training us for jobs that don’t really exist … yet,” said a student in Fleming’s American Healthcare System course.With the uniting of the many programs into one cohesive Center for Healthcare Leadership and Management, UT Dallas can help provide students with a solid foundation and community for exploring the many aspects of the healthcare field.“This area has a perfect climate to bring engaged health care-minded individuals to the issues and find solutions,” Dr. Berrett commented on the Dallas metro. “From the long waits in the lobby to how many bills you see, we have a terrific chance to improve efficiency.”center_img RelatedThe Best Healthcare Management MBAs in TexasAs the nation’s second-largest field of employment, healthcare is a fast growing and rapidly changing industry expected to be worth trillions in the near future.
