The University of Baltimore will bring its popular Master of Science in Health Systems Management program to students at the Universities at Shady Grove in Rockville, Md., this fall. Two core courses in the program—Epidemiology (HSMG 640) and Health-Care Systems, Organization and Management (PUAD 750)—will be available when the program launches at the USG campus. Other courses will follow as the program expands.
Students who are in the first year of the companion B.S. in Health Systems Management program at USG may participate in UB's accelerated option for the program, applying as many as nine credits of coursework to both their undergraduate and graduate degrees.
Located along Montgomery County's expanding high-tech corridor, the Universities at Shady Grove is close to Shady Grove Adventist Hospital and other medical facilities. The MD-355/I-270 corridor is the county's primary economic engine, concentrated in the biotech industry but highly diversified with advanced professional, research and tech services at its core—and it's expected to keep growing.
An open house providing additional information about the master's program and about UB's other offerings at USG will be held Saturday, July 14, 9 a.m.-noon, as part of a campuswide information session at the Rockville location. Students interested in applying to the new Health Systems Management graduate program can have their application fee waived if they attend the open house.
"UB is extremely pleased to add the M.S. in Health Systems Management program to its offerings at USG, and we hope to bring more exceptional programs to the Shady Grove campus over the next few years," said Stephen Percy, dean of the College of Public Affairs, which offers the graduate program.
