Our Master of Health Administration (MHA) program requires a summer administrative residency in a health service organization.
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 the resident 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.
