The Master’s of Science in Health Administration program helped lay the foundation of my 38-year career in pediatric administration. Since I graduated from the program (Class of 7), I continue to stay involved by being a preceptor, chairing the 25th Anniversary Endowment Campaign and consistently making financial contributions. I see this as an investment in my degree as the program continues to grow and move up in the rankings to number five by U.S. News & World Report.
What I’ve seen in the last decade at the School of Health Professions is an increase in student enrollment from 1,100 to more than 1,900; faculty rose from 70 to 100; and research dollars have increased from $2.5 million to $10 million. The only area we have not expanded is building space forcing some programs, including our Department of Health Services Administration executive programs, to meet off campus. We are considered one of the top health professions schools in the nation. Now, we need the facilities to equal the excellent educational opportunities we provide.
I hope you will join me in making a financial contribution to support our school to keep us as one of the best schools in the nation. Our future healthcare leaders are counting on it.
