Full-time MHA students are required to complete a clerkship project during their summer residency. The residency provides students with a concentrated period of time to relate and apply what they have learned in the classroom to a healthcare organization. Students apply “The Minnesota Way” of problem solving to their clerkship project.
A special thanks to Les Grant, Greg Hart ’76, Geoff Kaufmann, Justine Mishek ’02, and Jerry Nye ’77 for their assistance in selecting the award winner.
