Your Experience Counts

Our competency-based education (CBE) model allows you to use what you have learned in life and on the job to quickly move through content you already know and focus on the skills and knowledge that you need to know.

Did you know that employment of medical and health services managers is projected to grow 17% from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations? As the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active later in life, the healthcare industry as a whole should see an increase in demand for medical services.
