Historical program outcomes include:

  • From 1969 to 2014, 95.5% of the Army Baylor University students earned MHA degrees.
  • Individual outcome measures of promotions, promotion to the grade of O5 or Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) rank, and additional graduate education are tracked (Mangelsdorff, 2005, 2014).
  • Over 82% of U.S. military officers were promoted; 66.1% of active duty members reached the rank of O5 (LTC or higher).
  • There have been 24 general/flag rank officers.
  • Comparing promotion rates for Army Baylor University MHA students with their Army Medical Service peers, the Army Baylor University students were significantly more likely to be selected for promotion to LTC and to reach higher levels of rank (Mangelsdorff, 2005, 2014).
  • Between 1986 and 2013, 78.5% of the Army deputy commanders for administration (DCAs) and 7.7% of Army Medical Treatment Facility (MTF) commanders were former Army Baylor University students (Mangelsdorff, 2014).
  • Army MTFs with DCAs, who were previous Army Baylor University MHA residents, were more likely to have earned significantly higher Joint Commission scores and patient satisfaction ratings than DCAs who were not Army Baylor University graduates (Mangelsdorff, 2005).
  • Between 2008 and 2014, five of the seven corps chiefs of the Army Medical Department have been Army Baylor University MHA graduates (i.e., Medical Service, Nurse, Dental, Specialist, and Civilian Corps). Another served as the interim Army Surgeon General
