The Health Services Administration program is comprehensive, to include a mandatory UCF-affiliated internship experience. The internship experience is designed to provide students an opportunity to apply classroom learning to real world projects at real health care organizations. This is a highly coordinated effort that has resulted in tremendous success for the program, its students and its community partners. Many students have secured full time employment from their internship sites.
