Department of Health Systems Administration

Georgetown University’s Department of Health Systems Administration offers a bachelor of science degree in health care management & policy and a nationally ranked master of science degree in health systems administration (MHSA), which includes an on-campus and an executive track.

The department provides its students with the opportunity to work hands-on with a diverse set of health care organizations in the Washington, D.C., area and with health policymakers in the nation’s capital.  

Our undergraduate and graduate students learn experientially through internships on Capitol Hill; at think tanks, professional associations, and consulting firms; and within health systems. Executive MHSA students participate in intensive one-week engagements with local and global health systems and agencies.  

Our faculty have worked in a wide range of capacities within the health care field and are actively engaged in research on issues such as veterans’ health, health literacy, health care finance, emergency preparedness, and long-term care finance. The department continues to expand its partnerships with organizations and individuals locally, nationally and internationally.
