“The Masters in Health Administration and Leadership Program has been intellectually stimulating with an engaged group of colleagues and course materials relevant to my work.”

"The MSHAL course exceeded my expectations. The content was not only applicable to my daily work but also inspired me to think about other areas where I can make a difference. It provided great content in varied formats that kept my interest. It provided camaraderie between myself and physicians I had seen or heard their name but never knew. It was exciting to see these physicians share my passion for making positive changes throughout Covenant. The program does require a good deal of time, but it is well worth it. I enjoyed it even more than I thought I would."
Dr. Dawn R. Johnson, DO

"The program has provided new insight, understanding and knowledge that I have been able to directly apply in my duties in the hospital. The subject matter and assignments are immediately applicable to current workflows and the challenges we face in the hospital. It was especially rewarding to design and complete an assignment that was initiated in the hospital to solve one of these challenges."
