Master's programs

This six-credit course encompasses work experience linked to study in health administration in order to assist students to synthesize and apply their learning from other courses taken in the health administration program. The field placement provides opportunities for students to learn about and practice skills associated with operational, administrative, and managerial aspects of the health-care system through a minimum 240-hour work experience within a health facility or health-related organization. This transition-to-practice course is expected to help alleviate the well-documented unease that new graduates feel as they move from student to practitioner or from staff to administrator, or when experienced administrators are transitioning from unrelated fields into the realm of health care or into a new role within the health field.
