Executive MHA New Student Information - Summer Start

We are pleased that you will be joining our incoming students this summer in the Executive MHA program. We want to welcome you to the Department of Healthcare Leadership & Management at MUSC. The faculty and staff have been busy preparing for your arrival. 

Let me explain a little about the format of our program and course work. The program is lockstep in nature (meaning courses are taken in a prescribed sequence). Full-time students take three courses per semester; part-time students take two. The program is designed for working healthcare professionals and most students complete the program on a full-time basis. 

Your classes will begin online on May 1, 2023. Orientation activities will be conducted via the university's online learning system, Brightspace. The Summer 2023 EMHA on campus session will be held from Thursday, May 11 to Saturday, May, 13. Please refer to your plan of study to see which courses you will be enrolled in.

Between now and the date of classes you may have many questions. An important person to know, if you do not know if you do not already know her, is Ms. Mia Bradley, the student services coordinator who will be working with you. She also manages the Residential MHA program. Please call or email Ms. Bradley if you have any questions.

I wish you the best as you begin your studies here at MUSC. We look forward to working with you as you earn your MHA degree. Please let us know if you have any questions!
