  • Re: Need advice or suggestion for finding a healthcare administration job

  • Re: Administrative Fellowships

    Dear Ms. White, I just scanned a number of the fellowships presently listed on the ACHE Directory of Fellowships Listings.&nbsp; It appears that, strictly speaking, there are many postings that would not preclude you from applying nor that would disqualify you based on having earlier experience working in healthcare.&nbsp; That said, one ...

  • Re: ACHE job bank

    Johnita,Launching one&rsquo;s career is always challenging but especially so in the present environment.&nbsp; In reviewing your affiliate directory listing I find no work history so you don&rsquo;t enjoy a competitive advantage against the many other new graduates or new entrants to healthcare management that can present relevant work ...

  • Re: Graduate Degree: waste of time?

    Dear Stacey,I am pleased you asked this question as you ought to obtain a broad range of opinions in gathering data about so important a decision.&nbsp; I disagree that your advanced degree will not amount to much but I don&rsquo;t know what is the basis for the opinions of those several people you reference.&nbsp; If they are commenting on the ...

    James,Your personal work-life balancing act does make the challenge you&rsquo;ve undertaken &ndash; move into acute care- seem even more daunting that it actually is which is fairly daunting given how competitive the healthcare management field has become.&nbsp; Nevertheless, you are not without assets in terms of credentials, employment record ...

  • Re: Undergraduate looking for advice.

    You may expect that project or analyst related opportunities will be where you may most readily find a start.&nbsp; If this pattern holds, your start will be in a functional area (marketing, finance, IT, quality) rather than in general management.&nbsp; Do not be overly concerned.&nbsp;&nbsp; There are opportunities to lead in all areas and at ...
