MHA Residency

The Master of Health Administration (MHA) program requires a summer administrative residency in a health service organization between the first and second year of coursework, unless an alternative practice experience is approved.  The objectives of the HSMP residency program are to enable students:

(1)    To develop leadership skills, management skills, and policy analysis skills through direct participation in management activities and
(2)    To obtain practical information and knowledge about health services management and policy analysis.

The residency is a vital part of the total educational experience, and you will gain hands-on experience working alongside seasoned professionals who enjoy mentoring students.  See where our students have recently held summer residency positions.

The MHA program coordinator will help you find a site that matches your interests and constraints.  Summer administrative residents should ideally be included as a participant and observer of the top management group during the residency period.  The ability to relate theory to practice is essential to the professional development of a health care executive.  Preceptors should expect the resident to function as a full-time member of the management group and should also give the resident opportunity to work at their maximum potential.  For complete program details, including suggested projects and stipend/salary information, please review our 2014 Summer Administrative Residency Guidelines.
