Healthcare Administration Advisory Board

The online UW Master of Science in Healthcare Administration program is supported by an advisory board consisting of 12 to 15 representatives from the healthcare administration field who serve as advisors, ambassadors, and referral agents to the program.

The advisory board meets bi-annually and members provide constructive feedback regarding changes in the industry and how those changes affect program graduates. The meetings ensure the program and curriculum stays relevant to trends in healthcare administration. Board members are also asked to host students working on capstone projects, and create school-to-work transitions, so that as students graduate from the program they will move to gainful employment.

The UW Master of Science in Healthcare Administration Advisory Board provides recognized leaders in the field with a unique opportunity to further shape the program and healthcare administration profession. Learn more about the Advisory Board Member Responsibilities and Advisory Board Guidelines.
