Faculty and Administration

The Master's Degree in Health Delivery Science (MHDS) program is supported by a variety of faculty throughout Cedars-Sinai. A core faculty oversees program operations and a broader faculty advisory panel counsels the core faculty. There are 236 faculty members who belong to the Cedars-Sinai professorial series, and the program draws from this large pool of preceptors for the capstone project.
