Sonja Fuller“I learned more about myself through this course and feel reassured that I have the skills to make a career change from banking, finance, and capital markets to healthcare.

chamiliton“At this time of dramatic and disruptive change in the health care landscape — informed, innovative leaders are needed more than ever to help identify ways to promote health care affordability and ensure that Americans have access to needed care.  The Health Care Administration Professional Certificate Program provides a foundation for leaders who are grappling with the realities of a repealed Affordable Care Act and contemplating ways to protect consumers through the transition and into a replacement plan.   In the future, states will have much more authority in making health care management and policy decisions.  Strong health care managers are essential in shaping a better future for all the stakeholders of the health care system in the US – and UVM’s Professional Certificate program is a critical resource for leadership and scholarship in the field of health care management.”
