Center for Healthcare Leadership and Management


The UT Dallas Naveen Jindal School of Management is the definitive resource for healthcare management education in North Texas. The Center for Healthcare Leadership and Management (CHLM) facilitates collaboration among the school’s six academic programs in healthcare to offer industry-responsive education in order to prepare and equip industry-ready students.

Nationally, healthcare spending is approaching $3 trillion, representing almost 19 percent of the Gross Domestic Product. In the North Texas region alone, healthcare spending is estimated at $52 billion, and healthcare accounts for almost 700,000 jobs. Hospitals, clinics, research, ambulatory care, post-acute care and fiscal intermediaries are all part of this. As a growing industry, healthcare demands a more purposeful and integrated approach to workforce preparation and education.
