USC Master of Health Administration Student Experience


>>Natasha Tavakoli: [Background Music]
My passion in terms of healthcare is to create change within a hospital and then
see how it grows and it expands to being on a systems level and then a state
level and then a national level.>>Rachel Chieng: How I individually
can improve quality of care for the patient and for the patient experience.>>Tiffany San Juan: To help people,
to make the process more efficient.>>Mike Jones: I feel that there’s
a real need to figure out kind of a better way to manage healthcare. My experience at Price, I think,
is kind of preparing me for that.>>Erik Manthei: The Price
School fuels my passion by challenging the way healthcare currently is, allowing me to visualize how
it could be in the future. [ Music ] I see healthcare being fully integrated
into the community in the future, being not only where you get your
healthcare but also population health and being a full continuum of
care all throughout your life. I thought that the Price
had a really good vision on how hospitals should be
involved with the community.>>They offer a residency program
that not a lot of programs offer.>>Pushing the students to do a 1,000-hour
residency program really stood out to me.>>What you get to do is go and you have
this real world experience for, you know, anywhere between, you know, six months to nine
months, and you get to actually use the skills that you’re gaining from the program.>>You do get exposed to different sectors like
the hospital sector, the health insurance side.>>And then you get to network
wherever you are and take that with you.>>Being exposed to these different types
of people, they expect something out of you, and think that the MHA program
really does prepare you.>>What kind of etiquette, tips there are when
you’re meeting someone new, what to ask for, what not to ask for, how to dress. This is one step closer to the working world.>>USC offers the best networking opportunities.>>The alumni board increases our access as
current students to people in those titles such as director, CFO, president. If they’re earlier along their career path it
would be project managers or project leaders. And USC alumni love to come back and speak with
current students, talk about their experiences, so that we can kind of follow their career
paths if that’s what our interests are.>>The adjunct faculty also makes
you feel like you’re already kind of involved in the professional community.>>Our faculty are usually people that
are already in the healthcare field. And we get a lot of C-suite faculty members
such as CEOs, CFOs, that teach our courses, so they can give a great insight.>>The alumni and mentors that I’ve gained
through the program, there’s a lot of cohesion, and I have the full expectation
that these are people I am going to be working with for the rest of my life.>>And the sense of community is real. I go to my job, and I see so many of
my fellow classmates working there too. And, you know, we’re all interacting with each
other, and we all want to elevate each other. And I think that’s huge.>>People around me who possess these
leadership roles share the same passion as I do.>>And so be able to come to the Price School at
USC and dive into something that is just moving at a rapid pace and to be a part
of that change is really big.>>Impact means to me the way
I can improve the processes and the flow in patient care ultimately.>>If I can just make an
impact in a patient’s life.>>Visualize changes and policies that
can really help the delivery of care and be a better model in the future.>>Make change together. [ Music ]
