​The Importance of Collaboration and Partnerships “The most important class you take is the one we (your professors) do not teach!” Imagine telling your students or sharing that information with parents during a preview day. At Winthrop, Mike Matthews and I both tell students that very line.  It is because we truly believe the internship course is at the top of courses in  student development.  We recently saw this concept in action the first day of class in HCMT 493, the senior capstone class.  At the Annual Meeting in Long Beach, we learned from larger AUPHA program that had students prepare a poster session describing her/his internship experience.  We ...

​ Learning from Global Colleagues Hope that everyone had a great summer and is now back in the saddle for the fall. This is always a busy time but the activities ahead help to invigorate us all for the start of the academic year and the end of 2017. It is also a time to examine what we have learned over the year and how that new knowledge can help us to improve. As many are aware, your Board Chair Keith Benson and I spent a week in China this summer on behalf of AUPHA. The opportunity arose through an invitation from colleagues at the Tongji Health Management School in the Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China. They invited us to ...

​ Energy from Annual Meeting The recently completed Annual Meeting in Long Beach California continued AUPHA’s long tradition of creating excitement and value from three days of networking, learning, and even some fun. The Global Symposium or the site visits made for nearly a full, busy week. The theme “Maximizing Health Management and Policy Education through Inclusion and Innovation” generated a great deal of interest and many applications. The Annual Meeting Planning Committee, led by Keith Benson, should be congratulated for putting the program together. We had near record attendance at 354 for Long Beach and about 76 individuals attended for the first ...

​ As I start my year as AUPHA Board Chair, I must look back before looking forward. The first AUPHA meeting I attended was in 1994 in San Diego. I was a Ph.D. student and was presenting a paper with Dr. Larry Gamm.  At that meeting, I met so many icons in the field and was surprised how welcoming they were to a Ph.D. student. I have experienced that welcoming feeling time and time again and from my perspective it is a cornerstone of why AUPHA is important to me. Since my first meeting I have seen AUPHA change and grow.  AUPHA is now more inclusive and diverse.  By that I mean both in terms of organizational and individual members.  However, even though progress ...

“Course Hero.com” is one of several thousand sites selling academic support for baccalaureate and graduate students. The sites are unsupervised, presenting opportunities for several varieties of academic and commercial malfeasance. Course Hero’s funding—$14 million from private sources— and fee structure suggest that less than 1 million students buy the service. That’s a worrisome percentage of the roughly 21 million post-high school US enrollment.  It also suggests that the site’s claim to be “a platform of more than 10 million students and educators across the globe” might be inflated. Course Hero’s history suggests that many leave in disgust. Although it ...
