Call for Capstone Project Proposals!!


The purpose of this message is to provide an overview of an evidence-based management research initiative sponsored by the Masters in Health Administration (MHA) Program under the auspices of the MHA Capstone Course, which lasts for 10 weeks during the Spring Quarter (late March – early June). We seek to partner student project teams, under my proactive guidance, with healthcare executives in the field of practice. Below is an outline of the rationale for undertaking such projects, which lie under a larger action research umbrella.  
Overview: Learn more about how your organization can benefit from working collaboratively with UW faculty and graduate students to enhance problem-solving capability through evidence-based management inquiry. Our intent is to develop organizational and student competence in evidence-based management research modalities, also known as action research. Hence, organizations interested in fostering analytical capacity and disseminating outcomes by publishing and presenting findings nationally and internationally will benefit the most.    
Attached are informational materials as well as the project proposal guidelines. Should you intend to submit a proposal, or even more than one, please send it/them in using the project outline format provided here. I will follow-up with you to discuss specific requirements, project scope, deliverables, and our academic timeline to ensure collaborative efforts will meet our combined needs.
DEADLINE: Please submit proposals not later than Tuesday, 16 January 2018.

To obtain additional information, contact Suzanne J. Wood, PHD, MS, FACHE (sjwood@uw.edu; cell – 757-651-4897), program faculty in management and strategy, for the University of Washington’s Masters of Health Administration (MHA) and PHD in Health Services programs.
