Healthcare Informatics Administration - Community Leadership Projects
The capstone experience in our Master's in Health Information Administration program is a student-lead consultation project with a health care organization. Students work in small groups or teams as consultants to help solve a current issue at the organization of their choice. Once the problem statement and the scope of the project have been approved and defined, students conduct research. Once the research has been completed, a formal recommendation is developed and presented to the leadership of the health care organization.
The goal of the project is for students to demonstrate mastery of skills and knowledge gained, while also impacting a health care organization and the community it serves.
As part of our "servant-leadership" model, this project enables our students to give back to their communities and help health care organizations overcome challenges.
