Second year MHA students pose with Professors Jose Pagan and Liz Trevino at the Health Industry Council Annual Transitions of Care Conference, held in Dallas, TX, September 19-20, 2013. The conference focused on collaboration and best practices that help improve the care transitions process. Governor Michael Leavitt, former Utah Governor and HHS Secretary, Dr. Kevin O’Neil, CMO of Brookdale Senior Living, and Dr. Mark Pauly, Professor of Health Care Management at the Wharton School, were a few of the speakers offering insight and expertise.
First year MHA students participated in an Interprofessional Event on October 9, 2013. During this event MHA, MPH, TCOM, PA, PT, GSBS, and TCU nursing students reviewed two case studies to better understand how to approach real world health issues. This opportunity allowed students to learn how health administrators, public health professionals, medical providers, and researchers approach and manage a health crisis.
The MHA Internship Debriefing Session is an opportunity for MHA candidates to share their internship experience with faculty, staff, and students.

We encourage our current and former students to join the MHA Alumni LinkedIn group. Students can use this outlet to discuss important trends that affect healthcare leaders, review articles and case studies, learn about internship and job opportunities, and build relationships with people in health administration
