Healthcare Administration Scholars Program

Healthcare Administration Scholars Program (HASP) 

Description with Expected Results:

The University of Michigan Healthcare Administration Scholars Program (HASP) is a 20-month educational experience designed for house officers interested in pursuing healthcare administration as part of their careers. The primary goal of this program is to better prepare graduates to succeed in a leadership position in their field, which may require healthcare administration skills.  Additionally, the program would allow participants to establish a network for future collaboration.

The curricular objectives will be accomplished via the use of pre-requisite readings, small group seminar-style didactics, expert panel discussions, workshops, and capstone projects of the Scholar’s choosing.  After completing this activity, participants will be able to implement the foundational knowledge necessary to be effective healthcare managers and leaders and be able to implement effective management/leadership skills in specific domains taught.
