Health Services Administration Learning Opportunities

  • Whether you call it engaged learning, experiential learning or just being adventurous, we hope you will explore the learning opportunities that spark your interests, strengths and passions.

  • Your required internship provides practical experience based upon the theoretical foundations learned in the classroom. You will develop your management skills under the guidance of an experienced healthcare executive. The hands-on immersion in the field reinforces a commitment to the profession and helps to narrow your career path.

    A study abroad experience will encourage your personal and professional growth while developing cultural sensitivity required to provide highly efficient patient centered care. In a study tour group you’ll get a unique opportunity to learn about healthcare delivery in international healthcare settings. These faculty-led experiences integrate a global perspective of educational preparation, healthcare delivery and healthcare policy in an international environment.

    MSUM and the School of Nursing and Healthcare Leadership encourage opportunities and support travel to health administration conferences and events. As a member of the Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA), you’ll enjoy networking opportunities and a wide range of services to help launch your career in healthcare services administration.

    With the help of faculty members, you can complete applied research projects during your internship. These projects are designed to advance your knowledge in the field of healthcare administration and give you an opportunity to present your student research project at MSUM’s Student Academic Conference and other venues.
