Gaining Experience

If you have limited experience in healthcare, a 100-hour field experience in a healthcare administration setting will enable you to learn from professionals in the field and build a professional network. Field placements have occurred at places such as Brigham and Women's Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Cambridge Health Alliance, Joslin Diabetes Center, Boston Children’s Hospital, Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers, and the Massachusetts Hospital Association. If you have had at least two years of experience in a relevant healthcare setting, including one year in a management role, the field experience requirement may be waived, subject to the approval of the program director.
