Integrated Learning Experience (ILE)
The ILE is a culminating project in the field of health administration tailored to the student’s interest. This project allows students to apply classroom learning to a pressing healthcare issue in a real-world setting. A wide variety of opportunities are possible, including projects related to data analytics, financial or strategic planning, operations management, or quality of care issues.
Examples of recent MSHA ILE projects include:
- Created a COVID-19 vaccination clinic process plan
- Developed a surgical procedure checklist and implemented a communication plan with training to physicians
- Implemented a toolkit to help physicians talk with patients about the importance of flu vaccines to boost annual seasonal flu immunization rates
- Optimized current practices to improve patient food tray delivery in a hospital
