Cedars-Sinai opened the doors Monday for its first accredited master’s degree program in health delivery science.
The nonprofit academic health science center and 958-bed hospital in Beverly Grove designed its new advanced curriculum for doctors, druggists, and health care professionals from biotech to insurance. Its goal: to teach medical professionals to measure and improve the value of health care in the digital age.
It emphasizes applied analytical skills, health care finance and performance improvement strategies, and more. The curriculum also covers the latest advances in digital health, including social media analytics, smartphone health apps, therapeutic virtual reality and wearable biosensors.
The 15-month program, accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, includes after-hours classroom instruction followed by five months of health care field work.
