With our flexible structure, you will get to see and experience all areas of UCLA Health including the health system, ambulatory sites, and the faculty practice group. Each project will have a sponsor who will work with you on project definition, execution, and dissemination of results.

- Healthcare administration knowledge, including operational planning and system improvement in a hospital, clinic, and academic setting
