Master of Science in Negotiation & Conflict Resolution / Health Care

Program Details

The Health Care Collaboration and Dispute Resolution concentration is designed for an industry where working together effectively and defusing disputes is often literally a life or death issue. The complexity of the health care system makes arbitration and mediation more advantageous for the parties involved in a dispute than litigation. Using alternative dispute resolution methods and conflict management strategies, trained health care mediators can help resolve simple and complex issues between providers and patients and their families. 


A baccalaureate or higher degree from an accredited institution and all corresponding transcripts, a minimum GPA of 3.0, an up-to-date Curriculum Vitae, written mission statement detailing long-term goals and the role the M.S. in NDR would play in that, a short writing sample, two letters of recommendation, and an interview with a member of Creighton's faculty.

Requires two five-day residency requirements and a practicum experience.
