How to Work with HSI
Sponsor a Masters Student
The Masters in Health Systems Program of the Health Systems Institute provides an opportunity for Health Systems MS students to participate in projects at point of care with our sponsoring organizations, over the period of one year. Each student is paired with an industry expert and a faculty advisor during performance of the special project. There are a number of Graduate Research Assistantship sites that have involved our students and faculty over the last few years and are expected to continue.
For more information, please call or email David Cowan , Program Director 404-385-8190. To learn more about some of the projects that have been sponsored, please visit the Graduate Research Assistant Project Profile area.
