Advisory Council

Since its establishment in 2010, the MHA advisory council has helped to shape the structure and direction of the MHA program. The council is made up of key stakeholders in the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex area, who share an expertise of healthcare management, as well as a commitment to educating the next generation of healthcare leaders. Their input and engagement is helping to make the UNTHSC MHA program the best in Texas.
