Hospital administrators advise medical students

Bookmark and Share

As part of a curriculum redesign, the FSU College of Medicine developed a new program for the fourth-year students.  To prepare them for residency, they participated in a 3 week course at the end of their undergraduate medical education. This course, "Residency Preparation for Boot Camp," included an afternoon to explore the complexities and necessities of hospital administration. It exposed our medical students to the roles of hospital administrative staff and taught the need for interprofessional relationships. Representatives from all five of our partner hospitals were on hand to discuss vital issues with the students.
