MTM Master's Degree Program
A Master’s Degree in Medication Therapy Management can help students pursue new careers in pharmacy benefits management (PBM) organizations, hospitals, surgery and cancer centers, and home health agencies. Students are also taught the business aspects of MTM, so they can someday open their own MTM practice or expand their current services.
As more people are covered by insurance, and as insurance companies are pressured to reduce healthcare costs while improving patient outcomes, companies and medical providers are turning to MTM.
This 33-credit degree can be completed in as little as four semesters. The curriculum includes coursework in:
- Conducting patient interviews
- Communication techniques between patients and providers
- Medication-related action plan design
- Business plan development

A Graduate Certificate in Comprehensive Medication Management empowers students to explore new career opportunities in pharmacy benefits management (PBMs), surgery and cancer centers, hospitals and home health agencies.
