Northern Kentucky University has launched a new graduate program that teaches the process of developing and launching new healthcare products in the marketplace. The six-month online program culminates with a certificate in health care commercialization. It is the first grad program of its kind in the country.

Students in the program will learn how to transform research and development into viable healthcare products and services. The curriculum caters to healthcare providers, entrepreneurs, and career changers. Healthcare innovation is a growing focus for NKU, which has recently launched master’s programs in health administration and health informatics and a healthcare focused MBA.
