Professional Opportunities: Outside the Classroom


21st Annual Healthcare Symposium – Telemedicine in the Healthcare Delivery System

The University of Scranton’s Masters of Health Administration program hosted its 21st Annual Healthcare Symposium on April 4th, 2016 titled "Telemedicine in the Healthcare Delivery System" which offered 1.5 Category I ACHE Continuing Education Credits. The program brought in local healthcare leaders to discuss the direction of telemedicine.

It was attended by 180 healthcare professionals representing 18 organizations. Our program saw tremendous support from local organizations and had a record attendance. For this, we extend a special thanks to the Eastern Pennsylvania Health Executive Network (EPAHEN) for their support of the event and to Mr. Richard J. Hager, MBA, FACHE, for all of his help with the accreditation of the program.

Emmanuel Yeboah Addo and Ryan Stillman represented the University of Scranton's MHA program at the 2016 National Association for Health Services Executives’ (NAHSE) 21st Everett V. Fox Student Case Competition.

Case Competitions

NAHSE Case Competition

The NAHSE Case Competition is an educational opportunity that utilizes the case study teaching method to provide minority graduate students with an education experience that enhances their problem analysis, critical thinking and presentation skills while further exposing them to real-life health service administration issues. Participants have utilized the experience to place themselves into various fellowships, managerial and executive leadership positions, and consulting roles in the nation’s most prestigious organizations.

Since 1996, over 56 Universities participated in the NASHE Case Competition. Graduate Programs in Health Administration form a team of two to three minority students.

University of Alabama Case Competition

In spring 2016, MHA students Aimee Miller, Prudence Akindo, and Christopher Maglione represented The University of Scranton at the 2016 University of Alabama Case Competition. The UAB Health Administration Case Competition provides graduate students from CAHME-accredited programs an opportunity to put what they have learned into practice with a real-life, real-time case. It is designed to be a capstone experience for graduate students across the United States and Canada, and is meant to be a challenging and rewarding process for student participants who receive real-world, invaluable feedback from experts in the healthcare field.
