  3. Apply administrative concepts in a practical setting
  4. Gain insights for application in second year MHA courses, and

The Residency is intended to provide students with an opportunity to expand their experiences.  Residencies should expose students to new challenges and new environments.  Host organizations may include the Department of Health, District and Regional Health organizations and other public sector organizations.
