Students in the health administration track are motivated by a desire to improve health and health care.



The Health Care Management & Policy Honors Program is designed to recognize students of Health Care Management & Policy with a proven record of achievement and to give them the opportunity to deepen their analytical skills.  Students in the Honors Program will work under the guidance of a faculty member to analyze an issue of importance to contemporary health policy or management.

Honors Program Guidelines



Students in the health care management & policy program are required to participate in an internship during their senior year. Interns are assigned to senior executives of the MedStar Georgetown University Hospital who introduce the practical aspects of working on issues and projects focused on achieving the highest possible quality of care. The internship requires a minimum of sixteen hours a week throughout the semester and the completion of a senior project that is presented to the class.
