Multiple studies suggest that healthcare organizations excel most with a physician executive at the helm. Haslam’s PEMBA prepares physicians to take on this role, teaching them the specific application of business principles in a healthcare environment.
Haslam’s PEMBA is the longest running and most highly respected physician-only MBA. Unlike most other ranked programs, which typically have a duration of 18 to 24 months, it only takes a year to complete.
Haslam’s PEMBA students bring exceptional value to their organization by contributing at the highest strategic level while earning their degree. The program curriculum includes a number of major assignments and a thesis-like company project, both of which are structured to immediately apply to students’ organizations.
As a result, students have much more than a degree to add to their resume upon completion of the PEMBA. The program forces students to improve processes, achieve higher goals and conduct a transformative project, resulting in heightened job impact often leading to promotions within two years of graduation.
In addition, physicians are awarded 25 hours of continuing medical education credits after graduation.
