There is no definitive path. It depends on your background and goals, which vary widely from student to student. Physician students, for example, tend to want to move into additional leadership or administrative positions after the degree. Non-clinician students may use the degree as a stepping stone into a more senior role, perhaps one that focuses more on transformation and innovation in their organization. A search for clinical, administrative, research, and other types of health care job openings suggests that many companies value innovation, as part of their culture and as a skill. Some positions focus on leading innovation, while in others, one facet of the position may draw upon the types of skills and experience you'll gain in the MHCI. There is no formal career mentoring in the program, but we connect our students to a range of working professionals, beyond the program faculty, to help you build your network and shape your own path.
