Master’s Degree Students Secure Health Systems Administrative Fellowships

JANUARY 26, 2018 - Six students in the on-campus Master’s Program in Health Systems Administration will be headed around the country after graduation to begin administrative fellowships within health systems.

“The administrative fellowship is a very competitive process, serving as a metric for the quality of graduate programs in health administration,” says program director Christopher King, PhD, FACHE. “Success hinges upon applicants’ ability to articulate and propose solutions to complex critical issues leading the health care management agenda.”

The students and the location of their fellowships are:

  • Celina Holson (G’18), HCA West Florida in Largo, Fla.
  • Jonathan Moreno (G’18), Hospital Corporation of America’s Physician Services Group in Nashville, Tenn.
  • Jared Moses (G’18), Baptist Memorial Healthcare Corporation in Memphis, Tenn.
  • Kean Villarta (G’18), Memorial Healthcare System in Hollywood, Fla.
  • Rachel White (G’18), UCSF Health in San Francisco, Calif.
  • Ciara Williams (G’18), Beaumont Health in Detroit, Mich.

“Our students' ability to secure administrative fellowships reflects the caliber of future leaders we attract, the rigor of our curriculum, and real-world preparation tactics,” says King, who is also an assistant professor of health systems administration at the School of Nursing & Health Studies.
