Optimizing healthcare logistics and distance Master’s programs

Dr. Pratik Parikh's student research team optimizes healthcare supply chains and hospital logistics; they analyze data to determine how information, equipment, people, and materials can be better organized, moved, or used. Just as Dr. Parikh makes healthcare more efficient, effective, and economical, the distance classes for the all-online master's degree in Human Factors Engineering also take that approach. Choose any one of the five IHE Master's tracks to work at your own pace, meet caring faculty, make a difference, and find a balance between career and life. Scholarships are available for WPAFB military and civilian personnel. Dr. Parikh is Associate Professor of Biomedical, Industrial, & Human Factors Engineering at Wright State.
