Catholic health care systems find success in Institute's enrichment programs
September 1, 2018
Several Catholic health care systems have welcomed minority graduate students as interns through the Institute for Diversity and Health Equity's Summer and Fall Enrichment Programs (SEP/FEP). St. Louis-based SSM Health and Columbus, Ohio-based Mount Carmel Health System each hosted an intern this summer, offering experiential learning opportunities and the chance to watch decision leaders in action. "At SSM Health, we have a big desire to help foster people coming into the industry and this has been a good opportunity," said Matt Kinsella, SSM's regional vice president of finance in Southern Illinois. "The classroom is a great setting to learn management principles, but through the Summer Enrichment Program, graduate students have a chance to observe governance, leadership and operations, and build on those driving principles."
