We would like to thank our 2013-2014 Departmental Liaisons who have agreed to serve through August 2014.

The WSSU Department of Healthcare Management (HCM) is in the process of placing students in internships for the January 2014 semester. If you are interested in hosting a student or know of any contacts who are, your assistance would be highly appreciated. The internship component requires each student to spend a minimum of 32-40 hours per week, (January 13th- April 29th , 2014), for a total of 480 hours in an organization working on tasks and projects assigned by the designated preceptor and HCM. As you mentor our students, HCM has set several student-preceptor objectives for the internship experience: The students should have exposure to management decision-making processes; There should be a preponderance of opportunities, active involvement, and substantive projects; The students should have the ability to observe leadership and develop their own leadership skills; The students should be able to integrate healthcare management theory and application into the experience; The internship experience should offer opportunities based on the goals of both the intern and the organization; Provide the students with an opportunity to integrate learning experiences from context-free and context-specific curriculum and apply this knowledge in a practical work situation; Provide the students with an opportunity to assume responsibility for management/planning/policy activities related to actual health care problems; Give the students the opportunity to develop a relationship with an executive mentor who can provide them with personal guidance.
For more information contact P. Devonn Goolsby, MBA/HCM, DHA, Internship Coordinator/Instructor, School of Health Sciences, WSSU, at 336-750-2420.
