Active participation from industry leaders including design firms and healthcare providers, students examine how optimized design and policy empower people, organizations, and communities to achieve their health-related operational and business objectives.  Students apply the lessons from high-impact healthcare facilities to their specific area of interest (e.g. senior living, healthcare, hospitality, education, housing, landscape, and urban planning).

Outcome 1: Analyze new policies and strategies, identify operational and environmental gaps, and propose design solution.

Outcome 2: Explore how concepts of environmental psychology, behavioral economics, sustainability, and LEAN can be used to optimize facility and environmental design.

Outcome 3: Take part in cutting-edge research and design conversations, practice peer-reviewed quality writing within your focus and gain the possibility of being a published author.
