Trinity University requires that all students in the On-Campus Program complete a 12-month Administrative Residency. The goal of this Administrative Residency is to provide students with a practical understanding of and appreciation for the relationships between the clinical and administrative sides of health care.
"Trinity prepares its students to engage in continuous learning throughout their respective careers, which is required in an evolving industry."
John Adams '12, Vice President Operations, INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center
We believe management is a practical discipline, and the Administrative Residency allows students to apply conceptual knowledge learned in the classroom to everyday situations.
Residency placements cover the full range of health care settings, including acute-care hospitals, managed care organizations, consulting firms, long-term care facilities, and physician group practices. Placements are arranged between the department's Director of Residencies, students, and Preceptors. The Preceptor is a senior executive who agrees to guide the student through the residency and provide a comprehensive learning experience.
A faculty adviser is also assigned to each resident and makes an on-site visit during the residency period. Administrative Residents are required to complete papers and maintain contact with their Faculty Advisors. Residents are paid a stipend and considered full-time students. Six credit hours are earned during residency. Residency placements vary from year to year.
During the residency year, students work under the direct supervision of a senior-level administrator and are guided by an assigned faculty adviser. Students are placed in residencies throughout the United States.
