St. Thomas Aquinas Offering New Health Care Program


St. Thomas Aquinas College in Sparkill is launching a new Master of Business Administration in Health Care Management and Informatics to prepare students to address the growing need for qualified health care industry leaders, the college announced.

The number of medical and health service managers is projected to grow by 32 percent between 2020 and 2030, according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics.

“We are thrilled to offer this new concentration that will train leaders in this fast-growing health care industry,” said program director Dr. Joseph Charleman. “St. Thomas Aquinas College is the only graduate program in the New York and New Jersey area that prepares graduates of this concentration.

 “The program curriculum was developed based on the CAHIIM educational standards and guidelines for the Digital Health Leadership certificate. The DHL Certificate is recognized by health care organization executives and by (CHIME) The College of Healthcare Information Executives.”

The new program will offer evening, weekend and online course options. St. Thomas Aquinas is accepting applications for the start of the program this fall.
