The No. 1 Most Innovative School and Dignity Health Global Education have launched a Certificate in Innovation in Healthcare Management

PHOENIX, AZ | September 3, 2019

With advances in technology and improved diagnostic and therapeutic options, healthcare has experienced enormous leaps of innovation over the past several decades. The majority of this innovation has been focused on the development of new drugs, medical devices, diagnostic procedures, and therapies — now is the time to bring the delivery of healthcare services up to par. To solve this problem and nurture an innovative mindset in all sectors of healthcare, Dignity Health Global Education (DHGE) has partnered with Arizona State University’s Thunderbird School of Global Management to co-create a Certificate in Innovation in Healthcare Management.

Quarterly intakes will commence on November 18, 2019. The eight-week course will empower healthcare industry professionals — from senior executives to aspiring managers — to facilitate effective environments and deliver results from new innovations. The curriculum benefits from the combined expertise of the No. 1 Most Innovative School in the U.S. (according to U.S. News & World Report) and Dignity Health, who are part of the largest not-for-profit healthcare provider in the U.S.

“We are in the unique position to deliver a customized program that can address current healthcare issues and provide access to thought leadership pieces from professionals in the field,” said Kurt Hayes, Chief Learning Experience Officer at DHGE. “We are proud to present an engaging learning experience via video, case studies, and career-relevant tools, but we have gone beyond that — relevance to real-world challenges and opportunities were key in the development of the learning content.”
