Course Title

Harvard University Masters in Clinical Service Operations Student Co-Op – Oliver

Collaboration Overview

A six-credit capstone project is the key component of the program. During this intensive experience, students will work with and shadow clinical operation professionals at an HMS-affiliated hospital.
Oliver is attending remotely and he cannot take advantage of the partnership with the HMS-affiliated hospitals. As a result, he is looking for a  partnership with either local hospitals (preference), physician practices, ambulatory sites (e.g., dialysis clinic, endoscopy clinic, outpatient surgery center) to scope out potential clinical operations problems that would lend themselves to a capstone project.
This project should be focused on clinical operations. Past capstone projects have included patient throughput, operational efficiency, implementation of new technology, reducing over-utilization, and reducing patient wait days.
