MUSC Associate Professor Michael R. Meacham, JD, MPH, has been named by the American College of Healthcare Executives to serve a one-year term as one of its representatives on the "Higher Education 2025" Task Force. The task force is a joint ACHE and AUPHA initiative charged with analyzing trends in education and understanding technologies related to the need for educational content. In addition, the task force is to hypothesize features of the "classroom of the future" and identify key learning formats; identify implications of current competency models and emerging competencies on graduate and undergraduate health administration curriculum; develop a plan to effectively utilize practitioner and academic partnerships; and, specify gaps in academic capacity to support the development of future healthcare leaders. Based on these efforts, the task force will then develop a report to include a set of recommendations for consideration by ACHE and AUPHA.

MUSC proudly announces the graduation of its first class of Just Culture Certified students within its Master of Healthcare Administration program. "Just Culture" refers to a system of workplace accountability that is rapidly becoming the standard in high consequence industries. MUSC has partnered with David Marx and his firm, Outcome Engenuity, in an education/research project to develop and refine the academic materials and testing around Just Culture.
