The UAB Center for Healthcare Management & Leadership combines a futuristic vision that is mandatory in today's healthcare landscape with the distinguished history of an institution that has adapted to meet demand for nearly 50 years. Established in 1966, this leadership center has served healthcare managers across the southeast, the nation and the world.

Graduate Certificate for Healthcare Quality and Safety

Known around UAB as the Quality Academy, this is a unique, multidisciplinary approach to the analysis and solution of complex problems. The program prepares clinical and administrative professionals to deploy quality- and safety-focused strategies for their organization.

What began as a highly specialized curriculum in healthcare management for members of UAB Medicine, is now a much in demand certificate program that naturally leads to a Master of Science in Healthcare Quality and Safety.
