Welcome to HAMPCAS

The healthcare industry is a dynamic field, and the healthcare management profession includes individuals with specialized training in the traditional management disciplines, but taught in a healthcare context, combined with coursework in policy and public health.

The Healthcare Administration, Management & Policy Centralized Application Service (HAMPCAS) is the first national centralized application service dedicated these individuals--the applicants to graduate programs in health administration, healthcare management, and health policy.
