Why Choose Lean Healthcare Minor?

As healthcare costs continue to skyrocket, health facilities are fraught with inconsistent and inefficient processes, while having no system for implementing solutions to deliver safe, cost-effective, quality care. Lean management is being recognized globally as a solution which affords clear guidelines for identifying these inefficiencies, while providing effective methods for developing effective, sustainable change solutions. Students who earn this minor will be at a unique advantage and in high-demand in the field of healthcare administration, as the Joint Commission Center for Transformative Healthcare encourages use of Lean Six Sigma principles.

Admission Requirements

Although this minor is open to any student admitted to Ferris State University and pursuing a baccalaureate degree, the belief of faculty within the College of Health Professions (COHP) and the College of Business (COB) is that this minor would be very appealing to those students currently enrolled in a Bachelor of Science degree program within the College of Health Professions.

Graduation Requirements

An academic minor may only be awarded upon completion of a baccalaureate degree at Ferris State University. This minor requires a minimum of 19 credits with a minimum of 2.25 grade point average in these courses.
