Advisory Board

Advisory Board

The Advisory Board to the Health Care Administration (HCA) Program is a vital link between the academic and health care professional communities that need to positively interact as they assist each other in the professional preparation of students in this field.  The Advisory Board is made up of healthcare professionals from a variety of disciplines all of which touch upon the study of Health Care Administration.

The purpose of the board is to advise the Department Chair in matters related to curriculum development, program development, professional development, and community development.  Such advice might include information related to courses, internships, trends in health care, educational opportunities, networking for students, etc.  In effect, the board is a resource group, whereby the program and the board’s membership can gain mutual advantages from their exchange of ideas.

The board operates in both formal and informal levels.  There are two general meetings each academic year that take place on the campus of Methodist University.  Between these meetings, a variety of opportunities exist for dialogues on an informal basis among members of the board and the director on an as needed basis.

Ultimately, the Advisory Board acts as a mechanism to facilitate the exchange of ideas among individuals who are committed to the professional development of students in the field of health care administration.
