Where were you prior to MSHM? (Undergrad major, undergrad university, job?)
What are you most excited about for this coming year?
What does it mean to you to “Lead for the Greater Good”?
To me, “Leading for the greater good” means demonstrating yourself in a way that brings a positive impact to others around you for the benefit of everyone involved. Putting others before yourself is a key characteristic that comes to mind when I hear this phrase.
What types of roles are looking for post-graduation?
I am still looking for roles I would like to pursue post-graduation, but I am currently interested in Long Term Care roles as well as Project Management roles. With my undergrad being in Recreational Therapy, I have always enjoyed working and interacting with clients in hopes of helping them achieve successful health outcomes. I would like to find a role that offers me some interaction with clients or a role where I know my work is going towards helping others.
Do you feel supported by program faculty and staff?
I definitely feel supported by the program faculty and staff. They are always willing to answer any questions I may have, and it is evident that they want us to succeed with whatever role we take in the future. They have the necessary resources to help us succeed within the program while also placing an emphasis on mental health and taking care of ourselves.
What is your favorite part of the MSHM program thus far?
To this point, my favorite part of the MSHM program has probably been the Speaker Series. This is a panel of 2 alumni who come to talk about their time within the MSHM program and their current job. Some examples include Consulting, Long Term Care and Project Management. As someone who is still unsure of what I would like to do post-graduation, it has been helpful to listen to alumni about their experiences and the career paths that are available after graduating.
