Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because global health care is entering its most challenging era, with increasing demand for services from consumers newly arrived in the middle class, under-served people, and rapidly aging populations, all the while dealing with the need to manage advanced medical technology, transform core services to a digital platform, and the increased fiscal pressures created by the worldwide economic crisis.
I have learned to become more innovative, more productive, and more accountable.

Advice for students:
Students considering this course must have many things in common beyond being accomplished academically: they must be innovative, creative, risk-takers, curious about the world, concerned about other people, and very interesting in their own right. They must have already made commitments to professions such as medicine, engineering, and nursing. Many already have or are working on other graduate degrees, from a masters to a PhD. All have had interesting work experiences - in the health care world certainly, but also in many other fields. Many have backgrounds in the sciences or engineering, but the liberal arts, economics, and business are well represented. In short, while there is no one profile that clearly defines the Health Care student, they share a desire to have a significant impact on the delivery of products, technology, and services to patients. Their differences, as well as their similarities, are what makes them an unusually interesting, productive, and committed group, as reading through the short bios below will demonstrate.
