Each winter, SPH alumni and students are invited to participate in Gophers Gathering, connecting SPH alumni to students through a shared meal in the Twin Cities. Alumni have the opportunity to share their SPH experience with current students by hosting a meal, brunch or dinner, in their home or at a restaurant locally. Opportunities exist to host meals specific to particular academic program (i.e. PHAP, MHA, etc.) or to host a mixed group of students from all academic backgrounds. Contact Heidi Mastrud.

MHA alumni drive the problem method, a critical aspect of the MHA Program’s curriculum. If you would like to learn more or volunteer as a case advisor, please contact Justine Mishek, MHA ’02.

An objective of the Minnesota MHA Program is to prepare graduates capable of becoming health care leaders in all types of healthcare organizations. The residency/internship is a vital part of the academic program and provides the students with a consolidated period of time to relate and apply what they have learned in the classroom to a healthcare organization. The purpose of the residency is to provide an introduction to the daily activities of an organization from the perspective of top management.

If your organization has an internship opportunity, or you would like to learn more about the program, please contact Mary Ellen Wells, MHA ’84.
