About the Certificate
The graduate certificate in Health Facilities Planning is a collaboration between the Tyler School of Art and Architecture and the College of Public Health.

This gives students a taste of the work environment in healthcare management and facilities planning.
Undertaking the graduate certificate in Health Facilities Planning allows students to:
- build a knowledge base about healthcare facilities in pursuit of a career in healthcare management;
