It’s Great to Get Involved

One of the best parts of the college experience is joining student organizations that provide leadership, learning, and networking opportunities.

Our goals:

  1. Fundraising to make the brigade affordable to everyone.

Healthcare Finance Association

The Healthcare Finance Association (HFA) provides members with opportunities to explore career opportunities available in health care finance through corporate visits and guest speakers. HFA will also allow students to expand their professional network and education by being a part of the Gulf Coast Chapter of the Healthcare Financial Management Association.

Institute for Healthcare Improvement

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Open School for Health Professions is an interprofessional educational community that gives students the skills to become change agents in health care improvement. The student organization reinforces skills like quality improvement, patient safety, teamwork, leadership and patient-centered care. Employers are looking for these skills, and patients expect providers to have them. Most schools barely touch on these topics. We are here to help fill that void. Students in nursing, health administration, medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, policy and other health professions can think of the IHI Open School as their “other school” — an educational community that’s free and open no matter where they are.

Maternal and Child Health Student Organization

The Maternal and Child Health Student Organization is a resource that provides career development opportunities, awareness about maternal and child issues, and networking between students and public health professionals. As an organization, we are dedicated to pursuing research, volunteering, leadership, and training opportunities that enable future public health professionals to address a variety of issues in Maternal and Child Health.
