TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Association for Physician Leadership® has added Arizona

State University as its fifth partner to help physician leaders gain advanced knowledge and credentials.

ASU's School for the Science of Health Care Delivery will offer an MS SHCD through its Phoenix campus.

ASU joins the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Southern California and Thomas Jefferson University, giving physician leaders a wide range of options when seeking a master's degree program.

"We're pleased to announce this new university partner," said Peter Angood, MD, FRCS(C), FACS, MCCM, president and CEO of the association. "ASU's outstanding program will complement our existing partners' master's degree programs and open new options and choices for our physician leadership community."

Participants earn Lean Six Sigma green belt certification, with the option of seeking black belt certification. As with the other partners, prerequisites can be completed through association courses, live or online. The ASU program has rolling admissions and features five entry points during the year.
