Vanderbilt University said it has launched a new, one-year master’s degree program in health care management to teach doctors, nurses and hospital administrators how to apply business skills to solving health care problems.

“Clinicians frequently find themselves with management responsibilities, however, their clinical training provided them no experience or education in how to make business decisions soundly,� said Larry Van Horn, associate professor of management and faculty director of health care programs with Vanderbilt’s Owen Graduate School of Management.

Classes will meet one night a week plus one weekend each month for a year.

The program, which starts on Aug. 20, costs $43,000, including for books, meals, parking and supplies. For more information, call 322-3120.
