Health Services Management 6100 - Integrated Experience Point Project (6.0 credit hours)

This course will require students to develop a capstone paper as the culminating activity of the Master of Health Services Management (M.H.S.M) program. This paper will require students to apply a multidimensional perspective based on key concepts, theories and practices from program courses to address a current health organisational issue.  It is a means for students to identify a challenge or opportunity in a health organization and integrate the conceptual learning and critical thinking in a contextually meaningful fashion. The structure of the project is flexible in order to accommodate various creative endeavours and may be work-based. Regulations, standards, and conventions for the written culminating project are found in the School of Graduate Studies Policies and Procedures manual.
