Speakers & Site Visits

Students benefit from an array of guest speakers and tours of local health care facilities through the Friday Morning Series during the first two semesters. The Friday Morning Series sessions also serve to orient students into the professional work environment they will enter upon graduation.

The Friday Morning Series includes presentations by experienced professionals who share their insights and observations about the skills needed to become effective health care managers. Tours of local health care facilities provide students with the opportunity to observe the daily operations of an organization and interact with health care administrators.
