Academies are week-long immersive learning opportunities to take a deep dive into specific industry areas. These one-week experiences include hands-on skill development, coaching from industry-specific employers, and career development coaching in a supportive cohort environment.
The DC Healthcare Academy program builds on your liberal arts education and competency in the 4 P’s of healthcare - pharma, policy, providers, and payers. Students will expand their healthcare acumen to understand how healthcare policies are formed, explain the barriers to healthcare access, describe the spectrum of the healthcare delivery system, articulate the healthcare payment system, and understand the role of technology and analytics in healthcare.
