Our health care systems are changing – globally, nationally, regionally and locally – and much of that change is happening without the support of systems engineers who understand the issues associated with massive systemic change involving a diversity of people and organizations. Many health care professionals have significant expertise in their respective health care occupations, but often lack expertise in continuously improving the design of systems, processes or products. A May 2014 study recommended that “the United States build a health care workforce that is equipped with essential systems engineering competencies that will enable system redesign.”
This web-based online master’s program in Healthcare Systems Engineering is designed to attract students with a variety of educational backgrounds and keen interest in working in the health care field. It provides existing health care practitioners, and individuals with an engineering background who are interested in joining the rapidly expanding field of health care systems, with models and tools such as quantitative analysis, systems modeling and computer simulation for effective decision-making in health care organizations and systems.
Translating a specific design into an organizational or physical reality in the most effective manner, and with highest possible quality, is the focus of the industrial engineering and management systems field. This program is tailored to meet the needs of a broad range of working professionals interested in leading health care systems engineering and management initiatives. It is the first program of its kind, with no other university currently offering a similar program fully online.
These are the core values at UCF, and our community of thinkers, helpers and makers pushes boundaries and shifts paradigms to solve the world’s most pressing problems. A great university can unleash the potential to change the world. Listed as one of the most innovative universities in the nation by the U.S. News and World Report’s Best Colleges 2018 Guide, UCF specializes in providing high-quality distance learning options for those talented students and working professionals who are unable to physically attend our Orlando campus or our 12 Central Florida locations.
