Health Administration Alumni

Welcome to the Department of Health Administration Alumni page!

The Department of Health Administration has launched UNF MHA Alumni LinkedIn and BHA Alumni LinkedIn communities to more effectively engage and more frequently communicate with graduates. To date, approximately 70% of MHA Program alumni have joined MHA Alumni LinkedIn and the number is growing. With more than 360 MHA graduates and thousands of BHA graduates, the Department of Health Administration (DHA) maintains a very close relationship with alumni. Alumni serve as members of the Health Administration Advisory Board, as class lecturers, and as adjunct faculty members.


The MHA Program schedules annual local Alumni meetings and events as a networking opportunities. These activities allow the DHA to assist with building professional networks, to stay connected with our local Alumni community, and gain qualitative insight on emerging or changing skill sets within the health administration field. Alumni also interact with current students, providing advice on preparing for a career in health administration.


Health Administration faculty also meet formally and informally with alumni throughout the year. Alumni provide guidance on how to best meet the changing needs of local health systems and respond to evolving issues in the field. The DHA continues to sponsors alumni events throughout the year and incorporates Alumni feedback from these events into Department planning. Alumni provide additional feedback through an emailed survey every three years. This valuable feedback allows the Department of Health Administration to view Alumni career progression, encourage alumni involvement, and to solicit recommendations for program improvement.
