Online Synchronous Residencies

The Health Care Administration Program requires online attendance in four Synchronous Residencies. Each of these interactions will occur at the initiation of the following courses: Note see master schedule for course times.

  • HCA 521 – Health Care Systems
  • HCA 525 – Organizational Leadership
  • HCA 531 – Leadership in Marketing and Strategic Planning
  • HCA 613 – The Health Care Administrator Leader

A Synchronous Residence is an online learning environment in which a professor has the ability to engage with multiple online students at the same time, in a virtual classroom setting. This venue will provide tools for online presentations and a space for discussion and sharing of materials regardless of bandwidth, geographic location, or operating system. Professors schedule the Residencies to accommodate students’ work schedules and time zone differences to create a collaborative learning forum.
