SAMBA Mini-MBA Graduate Healthcare Certificate

Medical professionals in a meeting

Creating visionary physician leaders

The role of physicians is evolving. The business of healthcare has changed significantly in the last decade and requires all physician leaders to develop managerial and interpersonal skills to deliver value to their patients. Business acumen will improve the leadership and decision-making skills of anesthesiologists, vital skills to improve the efficacy of healthcare delivered around the world. 

The Society for Ambulatory Anesthesia, SAMBA, and The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business have partnered to create a 100% online Mini-MBA Graduate Healthcare Certificate Program for SAMBA members to meet the expanded needs of leaders in anesthesiology.
