Health Sector Management & Policy Advisory Board | University of Miami

The Advisory Board to the Programs in Health Sector Management and Policy consists of individuals from a broad spectrum of organizations in the health sector, including providers, payers, professional associations, health plans and pharmaceuticals. They are local, regional, national and international health care leaders who share a spirit of innovation and excellence, have a strong interest in the community, education, and wish to influence health care policy locally and nationally.

The role of the Advisory Board is to provide a forum for open dialogue among professionals committed to the development of health management education, research and policy. Members provide advice, guidance and support to ensure that the curriculum is cutting edge and that graduates are prepared to assume leadership roles in the industry.
