The Master of Science in Healthcare Administration and Interprofessional Leadership Program

The Master of Science in Healthcare Administration and Interprofessional Leadership Program (MS-HAIL) at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) is excited to renew our educational sponsorship with CAHL-ACHE.  This is a natural partnership to help professionals achieve their educational and career goals.  As a benefit of this partnership, current ACHE members are eligible to receive a $5,000 tuition remission provided by the UCSF MS-HAIL program.

Most leaders appreciate that lifelong learning is the gift that keeps on giving!  But in today’s fast-paced and highly demanding healthcare environment how can leaders achieve both their academic and career goals while still contributing to their organization’s mission? The UCSF MS-HAIL program was specifically designed with these working health professionals in mind.

MS-HAIL is a unique, online graduate program designed so students can earn their master’s degree in as little of one-year.  The program welcomes students from a range of clinical and non-clinical disciplines across the healthcare continuum. The hybrid online/on-campus model includes six online classes, three face-to-face on-campus sessions, and two administrative practicum courses in the student’s workplace. The online curriculum focuses on four content areas: Leadership & Change, Health System Management, Health Systems Research, and Interprofessional Practice. Within each area, students examine issues facing healthcare professionals every day: organizational complexity, leadership, innovation, healthcare policy and economics, effective business practices, and management of social and human capital.

We encourage CAHL-ACHE members who are interested in continuing their educational journey to contact us. We are currently accepting applications. To learn more about the program, please visit our website, or feel free to contact me or the MS-HAIL Admissions Team at
