Health Services Management Curriculum

FMR_Management Icon-0820[1]Created with Sketch.

This innovative four-year curriculum not only prepares residents for a career in the practice of family medicine, but for a leadership role in health care administration and policy-making.

The resident spends six and one-half blocks spread over years two through four with the administrative and management team of Memorial Hospital. Residents rotate through departments concerned with finances, quality, information systems, corporate compliance and much more. In addition, residents in this curriculum usually spend one evening a week during the academic year taking classes at Indiana University South Bend to fulfill the requirements for a Master’s Degree in Public Affairs with a concentration in Health Services Management.

Courses in the curriculum include emphasis on public management, health information systems, the impact of legislation and tort law on health care delivery and health planning. This curriculum is available to a limited number of residents. Longitudinal experiences throughout every year are described here.
