The residency is the only non-online part of Champlain's MSHCA program, giving students opportunities to spend time on campus, meet our top notch faculty and build connections with other graduate students. Our residency will allow you to:
- Develop professional connections with student colleagues, other health care management leaders and faculty.
- Integrate knowledge, concepts, and critical thinking skills gained in program courses that have been completed prior to residency attendance with the deep understanding of current, complex health care management issues and topics gleaned from the presentations of, and discussions with recognized leaders in the field, and have an opportunity for focused interaction and discussion with faculty and classmates as well.
- Develop professional connections with student colleagues, other health care management leaders and faculty through engaging discussions that weave the concepts of reflective practice into the learning process during the residency, enabling this methodology to evolve into a default process for all future studies and practice.
- Apply the deep understanding of complex health care management issues and solutions gained to future coursework and practice in a manner that leverages the many perspectives represented by the participants into a comprehensive and effective philosophy of management that can be applied in all health care settings.
- Expand thought processes and critical thinking skills to include the diverse perspectives, interweaving connections, and multi-disciplinary dimensions represented by all participants.
Managerial problems and opportunities are seldom functionally defined and are almost universally multi-disciplinary. In response to this phenomenon, students will gain the ability to utilize a systems approach to reframe problems and view them from multiple perspectives.
