Integrated Learning Experience (ILE)

The ILE is a culminating project in the field of health administration tailored to the student’s interest. This project allows students to apply classroom learning to a pressing healthcare issue in a real-world setting. A wide variety of opportunities are possible, including projects related to data analytics, financial or strategic planning, operations management, or quality of care issues.

Examples of recent MHA ILE projects include:

  • Created a COVID-19 vaccination clinic process plan
  • Developed a surgical procedure checklist and implemented a communication plan with training to physicians
  • Implemented a toolkit to help physicians talk with patients about the importance of flu vaccines to boost annual seasonal flu immunization rates
  • Optimized current practices to improve patient food tray delivery in a hospital
