Field Activity: Organization, Activity Summary, Role, Project Timeline Assignment Instructions
This Field Activity Project will be completed in two assignments. The project will aid the student in providing solutions that align with a biblical worldview to problems associated with cost, access, and quality of care. The capstone project seeks to integrate the concepts, techniques, and knowledge of all areas of healthcare administration, with a focus on the application of strategic management. This field activity project, which is completed in two parts, requires students to apply what they have learned throughout the curriculum. The overall objective of the capstone course is to enable students to build upon their theoretical preparation.
Each student will select an organization in which to complete a field activity. Note: The organization will remain anonymous. No part of any collection or analysis of data/information may be utilized or published beyond the course.
