Alegent Health Develops Master’s Program for Physician Executives

Alegent Health, Omaha, Neb., along with The Gallup Organization and the Gallup Leadership Institute at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, has developed a master’s degree program for executive physician leadership. The 12- to 15-month program helps physicians move into the executive roles needed to help health care organizations establish more performance-oriented cultures. The program’s curriculum includes courses such as strategic management and health care policy, applied organization behavior and information systems management. Six of Alegent Health’s physicians are enrolled in the inaugural program. For more information, contact Lora Ullerich of Alegent Health at
