MSHA Practicum Experience: The MSHA practicum documents students' mid-program administrative experience in a healthcare setting. The practice experience occurs in a carefully selected healthcare organization approved by the MSHA Director. Students are encouraged to select a practicum based on their career interests. A faculty advisor supervises the internship-type experience in tandem with a qualified preceptor at the practicum site. Our goal is that the preceptor serves as a mentor for the student.

PHMS-690 MSHA Capstone: This course is an integrative learning experience drawing on all competencies presented in the MSHA program. It requires the students to work independently as a member of a team to complete a comprehensive and relevant business plan for a healthcare-related organization and to successfully pass an oral examination.
