I joined the faculty in the summer of 1980. I spent that summer designing and developing a number of the courses in the M.S. in Health Administration. We admitted our first students to the program in the Fall of 1980. I have continued to teach and work on curriculum since that time.
I have held administrative positions in 200, 400, and 700 bed hospitals and worked as a health care consultant specializing in quality management, risk management, and board and medical staff relations. I have developed and taught a number of national seminars and workshops on these topics.
