Resources for HPM Alumni

The Department of Health Policy and Management (HPM) has more than 1,000 distinguished alumni who hold management or policy positions in the health care sector. One third of our alumni hold top leadership positions within their organizations with titles such as president, chief executive officer, and executive director. Recent Master of Health Administration (MHA) graduates have obtained management and presidential fellowships and entry- or mid-level positions in health care settings such as hospitals, academic medical centers, physician practices, long-term care facilities, insurance plans, and consulting firms. Recent Master of Public Health (MPH) graduates have obtained positions with health departments, foundations, wellness networks, and governmental agencies and organizations.

For two out of the past three years, 100 percent of our MHA graduates were employed in professional positions within nine months of graduation. For the same time period, the rates of employment within six months of graduation, including the pursuit of advanced degrees, for our MPH graduates ranged from 75 to 100 percent.
