Summer Internships

Students complement their academic training with an administrative internship between the first and second year. Interns benefit from observation, direction and evaluation by a preceptor, contact with diverse health care practitioners, attendance at various management meetings, and direct participation in projects. Past students from the department have participated in summer internships at such diverse organizations as community-based hospitals in both urban and rural settings, academic health centers, children’s hospitals, insurers, and medical device companies.

Post-Graduate Opportunities

After graduation, many MHA students pursue administrative fellowships at healthcare organizations. In recent years, students obtained positions at academic medical centers, consulting organizations, community hospitals, insurers, and health systems.

The post-graduate fellowship is a comprehensive learning opportunity which refines the individual’s analytic, technical, decision-making, and interpersonal,  while providing broad exposure to health care issues within an organizational setting. Fellowships afford a valuable means of observing, developing and demonstrating practical management skills while developing career networks of valued colleagues.

Graduates who decide not to pursue an administrative fellowship are employed in a variety of positions and organizations, including consulting, medical group management, policy firms, and third party payers.
