Health Services Administration Student Association
Welcome to the Health Services Administration Student Association at the University of Central Florida. HSASA is an organization comprising students interested in pursuing careers in health care administration. The goal of our organization is to provide networking opportunities for students within the field. We invite professionals from various health care organizations to talk to our members about their careers as well as other pertinent health care topics. In addition, we participate in numerous events throughout the year including socials, intramural sports, philanthropic events and fundraisers.
There are no GPA or participation requirements for HSASA. Any student, regardless of major or academic level, currently enrolled in classes at UCF may join our organization.
To provide a vehicle for constructive student involvement in the health care administration community and to create networking opportunities for students within the field.
Our meetings are held Mondays from 5:30 to 6:45pm in the UCF Student Union, Room 218C. Please check back for our Fall 2016 schedule.
