Quinnipiac University Healthcare Management Club
Academic Year 2018-2019
Message from the QU-HCM Faculty Director
We are pleased to provide the Quinnipiac University Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) Academic Year Report. The 2018-2019 year was yet another active and successful year for our student organization. Our students led and participated in education/networking programs described in this report. They also delivered a number of well-done projects and reports through their coursework and onsite placements and internships.
We would like to recognize the efforts and thank our QU-ACHE student-leaders. Jasie Mathew provided club leadership, as our club Co-President, and also the student representative on the CTAHE board. Dylan Mariano directed completion of this report. Yamini Ranganathan, Jasie Mathew, Edward Brady, Elizabeth George, Dylan Mariano and Joanna Proctor contributed to this report. Ryan Cuttitta and his team- Meghan Cacace, Blake Heller, Scott Gonzalez, and Joanna Proctor helped lead a successful event. Amanda Colpitts also served as Co-President and was membership chair. They were an outstanding and productive team.
This year we once again saw the return of our alum to mentor their junior colleagues in our program: So You Want a Career in Healthcare Management: What Should You Do? Connor Rand and Dori Horne, previous club presidents returned from their positions at Qualidigm. Qualidigm continues to provide summer internship and employment opportunities for our students. Our students also received several accolades for their work. Among them-Samuel Sondheim, our first MD/MBA graduate’s project with Kurt Barwis was selected to represent the School of Business at President Judy Olian’s inauguration events.
We once again welcomed many of you to our campus and enjoyed the benefits of your mentorship. Denise Fiore sponsored a summer internship. Kimberly Lumia joined our medical school students for a lively discussion.
You all took time from your busy commitments to visit our campus, meet with our students and provide internship/residencies and project opportunities for our learners. We are extremely appreciative of our relationship with CTAHE and consider all of you valued partners in training the future generation of healthcare leaders.
Our Sincere Appreciation!
