Student interview

  1. 1. Say Q: What did you expect from your MHA? - a good job in a hospital using my MHA skills - an entry level management position
  2. 2. Say Q: What are you finding in your job search? - there are no jobs! - hospitals are not hiring managers w/o experience; - there are many applicants for every job;
  3. 3. Say Q: Where else besides hospitals have you looked? - really only wanted to work in a hospital; Q: What is unique about the hospital? - I can provide help to people that are suffering! - I can insure quality of care, efficiencies, and cost/benefit;
  4. 4. Say Q: What have learned from this experience? - maybe the MHA was not a good choice; - I’ve been advised I should have clinical experience; - I probably could have been hired in a supervisory clinical position, at least;
  5. 5. Say Q: What are your immediate goals now? - expand my job search out of the state; - exploring PhD programs; - exploring clinical degrees;
  6. 6. thinks - she made a mistake getting an MHA; - the school lacks in advising and helping in her job search; - she is angry at the school for promoting a degree that has little opportunity for success; - if she pursues another degree it will be elsewhere;
  7. 7. (I) Feel - the student has too short a time frame - expects more now; - she naively expects a management position w/ no experience; - she was unaware of the scarcity of jobs; - she was unaware of the clinical bias; - she has not explored other h/c jobs like in large medical practices, o/p clinics, etc.
  8. 8. Problem Statement The very young, well groomed, articulate, perhaps naive, graduate student needs a way to be mentored because she has an unrealistic view of the healthcare industry and her (expectations of the) MHA degree.
