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. 

Requirements

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.
