MHA Employment Success
With access to a number of graduate career management resources and the MHA career development and employer relations manager Kathryn Adair, MHA students have been successful in finding internships, fellowships and professional employment.
Program director Debra Scammon attributes the continual placement success to talented students, dedicated career coaching, strong relationships with healthcare organizations and the program’s CAHME accreditation.
As part of the MHA program, most students are required to complete a 450- to 500-hour administrative internship. This internship provides students with real-world experience needed to secure a rewarding position upon graduation. Students are frequently offered full-time positions after a successful internship.
Our career development and employer relations manager works closely with students to create an internship experience that fits their current situation and fulfills the valuable goals of this requirement. Internships may be full-time over a single summer or part-time over several semesters. Internships can be coordinated to meet the needs of students working full-time.
