Health-System Pharmacy Administration Graduate Program


Curriculum delivery is fully online, providing a convenient and flexible opportunity to enable current health care professionals to obtain the skills they need to assume management and leadership positions in hospitals and health-system pharmacy practice environments.

Masters of Science (M.S.)

Mid-career practitioners enrolled in the M.S. degree only, may finish the program in two to six years. All courses are offered online through Kent State University (KSU) through the Learning Management System (LMS) called Blackboard.

Masters of Science (M.S.) / Residency

Students accepted in a concurrent post-graduate HSPA residency program are expected to complete the program in two years. The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accredited postgraduate residencies, completed concurrently with the two-year M.S. program, allow students to immediately apply hands-on experience gained through clinical and administrative rotations and knowledge gained in the classroom to real-life professional, clinical and management situations. The concurrent two-year specialized residencies in pharmacy administration are conducted currently at the Cleveland Clinic Main Campus or Cleveland Clinic Akron General Medical Center.
