Northern Kentucky University (NKU) has launched a new graduate program focused on commercializing health care technologies, which it cites as the first such program in the country.

The Health Care Commercialization Certificate will be offered online for completion in as little as six months and is intended for medical providers, entrepreneurs, and others looking to advance their careers in health care technology.

“Even though nearly one out of every five dollars in the U.S. economy is linked to the health care industry, no other institution is educating its students on the unique opportunities and challenges related to commercializing health care technologies and services. While some offer certificates in health care marketing, NKU is the first to truly offer this combination of courses. We are meeting the region’s need for trailblazing innovation, and I’m excited to see this program’s impact,” says Doug Ladd, executive entrepreneur in residence and professor of practice at NKU.

“Our region is a major hub for health care facilities, biomedical firms, research organizations and medical device manufacturers,” he adds. “There is a need to help those currently in the sector better understand the increasing costs and challenges, such as an aging population. This certificate program will help ensure that.”
