HCPM 490 - Healthcare Management Practicum & Seminar

Credits: Three (3)
Prerequisite: HCPM-456
The Practicum is designed to give students the opportunity to learn about practice management by immersing themselves in the daily activities of a practice management professional. During the practicum, students often observe meetings, work collaboratively on site projects, conduct informational interviews, with the goal of increased understanding of the profession and potential career paths. It requires a minimum of 60 hours at a pre-approved healthcare practice/facility.  Specific assignments during the practicum will be tailored to the opportunities available at the assigned site. The onsite portion is accompanied by classroom discussions focused on personal and professional growth.
