Healthcare Management MPH reaccredited by CAHME
We're proud to announce that after a rigorous review process, the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) has reaccredited the Master of Public Health in Healthcare Management program for seven years.
 
Considered the benchmark of healthcare management education, CAHME accreditation is highly sought after by students and employers. The MPH in Healthcare Management at UTHealth School of Public Health is one of only a select few MPH programs in healthcare management in the country accredited by CAHME. In addition to CAHME accreditation, which recognizes excellence in healthcare management, the healthcare management program is also recognized for excellence in public health through UTHealth School of Public Health’s Council on Education for Public Health accreditation.
 
"Full seven-year accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education solidifies our program's status as one of the top healthcare management programs offered in schools of public health." says Robert Morgan, PhD, professor and chair of the Department of Management, Policy and Community Health.
 
The program was also one of the first to earn continued accreditation virtually in accordance with CAHME’s pandemic policies, adds Lee Revere, MS, PhD, professor in the Department of Management, Policy and Community Health and director of the healthcare management program. She credits program faculty for adapting to the virtual format.
 
“I am so proud of our faculty for rising to the challenge and working hard to secure our continued accreditation for the full seven years,” Revere says. “This honor speaks to our program’s quality and our faculty’s commitment to our students.”
 
 
Revere named AMA Health Systems Science Scholar
 
Congratulations to Fleming Center director Lee Revere for being selected as one of 50 national AMA Health Systems Science Scholars for 2021!
 
Launched in 2019, the AMA training program trains future physicians to be better equipped in modern health systems. Faculty members from U.S. medical schools and residency programs are selected for the prestigious 12-month program through a competitive application process. Each scholar completes a curriculum project over the course of the year that can be integrated at their institution.
 
In addition to her Fleming Center responsibilities, Revere serves as co-director of Interprofessional Education for UTHealth and the Longitudinal Themes committee for McGovern Medical School. Her project will develop interactive and engaging educational materials that demonstrate and teach medical students to efficiently and effectively communicate with patients, families and the care team using EPIC, a new electronic health records system that will be rolled out at UTHealth McGovern Medical School in May 2021. 
 
"Integrating health system science with the clinical curriculum equips future clinicians to work within and across complex care delivery systems." Revere says. "My AMA Health System Science project focuses on improving communication and patient safety through enhanced training and hands-on experience with EPIC."
 
Student News
Jose Antonio Negrete (Healthcare Management MPH '21) has received an administrative fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine. As a fellow, he will help develop and implement departmental projects that advance Baylor's educational, healthcare and research missions. He says the healthcare management program has prepared him well for the fellowship, by providing him with opportunities to develop managerial competencies such as analytical problem solving, teamwork and strategic management through real-world projects. "My ultimate career goal is to make a positive contribution to the reduction of health disparities among Hispanic populations and other minority or marginalized populations," Negrete says.
