4. Internship:

This is a key part of our program. It is required of most students, anyone who has not had significant management positions (hire/fire authority and budget responsibility) in healthcare organizations for two or more years. Once students have a general idea of the sector of the healthcare industry they find most appealing we can help you locate an organization in that sector here in South Florida for an 15-20 hrs/week internship, working with upper level management in the organization learning about how the organization does business and the continuing balance between regulation, revenue, and responding to patient needs. This is a one credit class.
