Encouraging the Next Generation of Leaders
On April 10, 2013, 22 juniors and seniors from Tampa Bay Technical High School’s Health Professions Program visited the University of Florida as part of an annual tour and information session. These students are interested in learning more about the field of healthcare as they consider administration as a potential career path. The day started with a tour of Shands, including stops in the ED, PICU, Food/Nutrition department, and the ShandsCair Helipad – this was a particular favorite! Following the tour refreshments were served, and a brief information session was led by current Master’s in Health Administration (MHA) students, Program Directors Ms. Cynthia Toth and Dr. Allyson Hall, and Department Chair Dr. Paul Duncan. Finally, the day concluded with a walking tour of UF. This annual visit is a great way to showcase the promising opportunities within healthcare administration and was a terrific success!
