Zach Hudson

JD-MHA Student
"The JD-MHA is, and will remain, an extremely valuable asset within an ever-changing healthcare market. The program provides a great blend of both administrative and legal thinking. The professors are knowledgeable and willing to help, and the schedule is doable, with law classes during the day and MHA classes in the evening. The MHA provides me with another way of thinking that will complement my JD, whether in a law firm, hospital, or other setting. If you have an interest in healthcare and know that healthcare is where you want to take your career, I would suggest seriously considering the JD-MHA."

The JD-MHA program has allowed me to pursue internships in law, as well as healthcare administration, while maintaining a full-time class schedule. The MHA offers me a better understanding of healthcare administration, which facilitates better legal counsel. If you have an interest in health law and policy, as well as administration, don't miss out on the opportunity to gain a competitive edge in the job market."

JD-MHA Student
allison"After college, I knew I wanted to be involved in healthcare policy, but I didn't know what career opportunities were available. When I learned about the JD-MHA joint degree, I knew it was perfect because it would give me an opportunity to focus my passion in a highly marketable way. The JD-MHA program gives students great real-world experience that is so essential to career development. In my three years in the program, I have completed an externship at a hospital, been a research assistant for a renowned health law professor, worked in a health law firm, and will soon have the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. for an internship at the Department of Health and Human Services. I have made invaluable connections with friends, professors, and practitioners in the field. I believe these opportunities are putting me on a path toward a successful and fulfilling career. I would encourage anyone who is serious about a career in healthcare law and management to consider the JD-MHA program. Although it is a challenging experience, it has definitely been worthwhile."
