A Message from the QU-AHE Faculty Advisor/Director:
We are pleased to provide the Quinnipiac University Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) Academic Year Report. 2017-2018 was a very successful and active year for our student organization. Our students lead and participated in education/networking programs described in this report. They also delivered a number of excellent projects and reports through their coursework and onsite placements and internships.
This year we instituted methods to involve our online students in networking and educational events. Some of our guestspeakers have gone online in an effort to provide all our students with access to their expertise. We also held a program attended by 100 students that met both onground and virtually. Our alum visited the campus to
provide an overview of careers in healthcare management. Kurt Barwis also opened his hospital for professor-student research that resulted in a publication in American College of Healthcare Executive’s (ACHE) competitive Journal of Health Care Management.
We would like to recognize the efforts and thank our QU-ACHE studentleaders. This year we welcomed the active involvement of our medical students. Samuel Sondheim, our first MD/MBA student, served as copresident with Dorothy Horne. Tony Li-Geng, a medical student in the healthcare management concentration at the medical school, served as our program lead for our successful Healthcare Management Careers program. Jasie Mathew led our program “So You Want an Internship, what do I Do?” Sarah Rosenthal provided the club’s communication
and edited this newsletter. They were an outstanding and productive team.
None of these opportunities would be possible without the help and support of all of you! Gary Havican, Denise Fiore, and Nancy Rosenthal made time to mentor our students. 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 and grateful for our relationship with CT-AHE and consider all of you valued partners in training the future generation of healthcare leaders.
Our Sincere Appreciation!
Professor & Chair, Dept. Healthcare Management & Organizational Leadership
