    Not sure where to begin

    Hi,

     I graduated with my Masters in Health Services Administration in 2006 and since then have been with the Medical School at a University.  My current job is with the Institutional Review Board and does not allow me to apply what I have learned in school.  In the past two years I have been promoted to the Operations Manager managing at least 7 persons at one time and there is the promise of an Associate Director position in the near future, however I am interested in pursuing what I consider my calling in Health Care Management.  I am however unsure on where to begin.  Can anyone offer some advice?

    Thank you,

    Dawn S. Prospect, MHSA

    Dawn,

    The promise of a position that carries more repsonsibility can be an obstacle, especially if you don't fell like you're using everything you've learned in school.  I would imagine that there would be a number of opportunities available outside of the IRB arena through the University you are employed.  I might suggest taking a look into those positions, as they might be more suited to your career path, enabling you to use all of the knowledge you have gained in your studies.

    Good luck,

    Scott
