Center for Health Sector Management and Policy
The Center for Health Sector Management and Policy, established at the School of Business Administration in 2010, serves as a resource to businesses and policy making bodies, conducts and disseminates leading edge research, offers consult services to the health care and business community and provides training and education for those in the health sector.
Through the center's experts bureau, which includes faculty from the School of Business, leading authorities in health sector management and policy are available to speak and provide expertise to local, state and national legislative bodies, government agencies, the news media, trade associations, conference planners and other organizations.
The center's consult practice helps organizations in the health sector tackle complex challenges in such areas as process improvement, supply chain management, health care economics, cost-effectiveness analysis, management and leadership, physician process management, ethics and compliance, international health care policy and health care technology.

The center's education and training programs include open enrollment and customized executive education programs targeting the health sector. Among the first of these is a business certificate program for physicians delivered through a partnership with the Florida Medical Association. The first program was delivered in August 2010.
