The mission of the Department of Health Administration is:
- educating the next generation of health administrators and enhancing the skills of the present generation;
- preparing a new generation of health services researchers and educators;
- creating and disseminating basic and applied knowledge about the management, organization, financing, function, and performance of the health care system; and
- serving people in the public and private sectors of the health care system.
These activities, when mutually reinforced among all key people—faculty, staff, students, alumni/ae—elevate the Department to a premier status among similar departments in the United States.
