Join health care administration graduate program virtual information session
The health care industry is experiencing an increased demand for innovative and dynamic professionals to lead through the current coronavirus crisis and beyond. Salve Regina’s graduate program in health care administration offers two master’s degree tracks to train the leaders needed to tackle these challenges: the M.S. in Health Care Administration and the M.S. in Health Care Administration with a concentration in cybersecurity.
Professionals interested in learning more are invited to attend a virtual information session on Thursday, May 28, at 4 p.m. Registration for the event can be requested at salve.edu/grad-infosession.
David DeJesus Jr., graduate program director for health care administration, and Matthew McMahon, adjunct faculty in cybersecurity, will present an overview of the program, which will then be followed by a Q&A.
Prior to joining Salve Regina in 2019, DeJesus was senior vice president of human resources for Southcoast Health System. In addition to his role as director of graduate programs in health care, DeJesus is a lecturer in the program. He holds several degrees from the University of Rhode Island, including an MBA and an M.S. in Labor Relations.
McMahon is currently employed by Siemens Healthineers, a large medical device manufacturer. He is a senior software engineer in the security office, where he helps shape global product security policies and initiatives, conducts threat and risk assessments and responds to security incidents. McMahon often speaks at cybersecurity conferences and events.
All of the classes in the graduate program are taught by respected professionals who blend theoretical foundations with first-hand knowledge from their areas of health care management expertise. The program can be completed 100% online; select classes are also offered in a hybrid in-person/online format at Salve Regina’s main campus in Newport and the satellite location in Warwick.
Salve Regina’s M.S. in Health Care Administration prepares motivated individuals for management positions in hospitals, health systems, mental health facilities, physician practices and government and non-government agencies. With the cybersecurity track, the student develops an in-depth understanding of cybersecurity threats, risk management best practices, laws and regulations applicable to electronic health records and techniques to build enterprise-wide cybersecurity awareness.
