Dr. Emanuel will outline the changing landscape of American health care. He will discuss the effects of health reform on our current system and then make specific, data-driven predictions about the future of American health care. He will conclude with concrete advice for what you can do to adapt to this new environment.

Health Policy and Management celebrates fifty years - SPIF1

It was 1967. Just the year before, more than 23 million elderly and impoverished Americans had enrolled in the newly enacted Medicare and Medicaid programs, and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation continued towards its goal of professionalizing the management of hospitals. In that year, Tulane was one of only three universities awarded a Kellogg grant to establish a program in health administration. Dr. Thomas Hamrick, chair of the Department of Health Services Administration, hired Dr. Walter Burnett to serve as the first director to design and launch an MPH program in Health Services & Hospital Administration.

The U.S. healthcare ecosystem is undergoing a profound transformation towards a more consumer-driven market, often within the confines of increasingly constrained resources. In response, Tulane’s department of health policy and management has introduced two new graduate certificate programs aimed at preparing current and aspiring leaders with the quantitative and evidence-based management, leadership, and personal mastery skills needed to guide an organization in this new environment.

The Kellogg Foundation provides a grant to Tulane SPHTM in 1967 to establish a master degree program in hospital administration.
