The healthcare technologies management program is a collaborative effort between Marquette University and the Medical College of Wisconsin that combines management, technology and healthcare. The objective of the program is to educate professionals capable of managing the design, development, commercialization and regulatory compliance of diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices, and the implementation, utilization and assessment of hospital-based healthcare technologies.
Healthcare institutions, medical device companies, and healthcare consulting firms have a growing need for skilled professionals with technical and managerial skills, and an understanding of healthcare delivery and regulatory environments. Graduates of the program will have the education and skills needed to pursue career opportunities in clinical, industrial, and consulting environments. The program meets the needs of recent undergraduates seeking an advanced degree as well as employed engineers interested in opportunities to prepare for career advancement.
Elective courses, professional projects and internship opportunities enable students to customize their training to meet individual needs, interests and career goals. With the assistance of a faculty and industry/clinical adviser, students are required to design and complete a professional project in healthcare technologies management. This project will help develop skills that will be useful in the clinical or industrial environment.
The course offerings and schedules are designed to allow working students to pursue this master of science degree on a part-time basis. Full-time students can complete the program in three terms (12 months). Course topics include: technology assessment, ethics of technology utilization, standards and regulations, product development and the environment of healthcare delivery.
