Hospital leaders from Las Vegas, Houston, and Chattanooga highlighted the UAB School of Health Professions’ Master of Science in Health Administration’s (MSHA) inaugural Disaster Preparedness Week delivering first-hand crisis lessons.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham’s only Doctor of Science (DSc) program has changed its name to the Doctor of Science in Healthcare Leadership to reflect a focus on leadership education for C-Suite and executive-level members of the healthcare field.

Patrick Grusenmeyer, Sc.D., FACHE, who served as vice president, president and CEO within the Christiana Care Health System for nearly 20 years, has been named director of the UAB Center for Healthcare Management and Leadership.

New program, Master of Science in Clinical Pathologist Assistant program, is offered totally online. Program director says, "As new tests develop and become more complex, it will be imperative that we prepare graduates to address issues that may be encountered as a results of these changes."
