Modern Healthcare ranks TWU-Houston’s HCA program as 4th largest


HOUSTON – Modern Healthcare, the weekly magazine for hospitals and healthcare industry executives, recently ranked the master of health care administration program at Texas Woman’s University’s Institute of Health Sciences-Houston Center the 4th largest in the nation.

The rankings were tallied using the total number of students enrolled, based on July 2007 reports. TWU’s Houston program tied with the University of Pennsylvania as 4th largest program with 160 students.

Dr. Kelley Moseley, professor and director of TWU-Houston’s health care administration program, credits the ranking to the quality of the program, the faculty and the students themselves.

“We’re a practice-based program that attracts working healthcare professionals, as well as those without health care experience, who can benefit from the networking opportunities of fellow students working in the industry,” Dr. Moseley said.

Dr. Moseley also cites the program’s accreditation, location within the Texas Medical Center, close affiliation with Houston hospitals and its relationship with the American College of Healthcare Executives professional association as reasons for attracting students.

Dr. Jimmy H. Ishee, dean of the College of Health Sciences, said, “One of the goals in TWU’s strategic plan addresses national recognition of programs. This ranking is an excellent example of how the health care administration program in Houston is achieving that goal for the College of Health Sciences.”

TWU-Houston’s master of health care administration program, accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME), prepares working professionals for management positions and leadership roles in the healthcare industry by offering a comprehensive, rigorous curriculum.
