Vanderbilt program to teach doctors, nurses business skills

The Tennessean, July 16, 2008

Nashville-based Vanderbilt University has launched a new, one-year master’s degree program in healthcare management to teach doctors, nurses and hospital administrators how to apply business skills to solving healthcare 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,” Larry Van Horn, Vanderbilt's associate professor of management and faculty director of healthcare programs, told The Tennessean.
