Networking

Networking is a fundamental tenet of the program.  Students are not only taught how and where to network, they are offered a series of opportunities to do so with industry leaders and alumni of the program. MMCi has a strong networking culture and dedication to alumni “paying it forward” to current students.

Networking Events

As part of the Career Development program, MMCi invites leaders from a variety of health industry firms to provide insights into how informatics is changing their organizations, as well as networking opportunities for MMCi students. These events are held Thursday evenings and at Friday lunch.

A themed series of panels is scheduled on Thursday evenings. Topics include: Mobile Health, Consulting, and Perspectives from CIO’s, Analytics and Healthcare Employer Panels.  Guest speakers also present to students at Friday lunch.  Examples of recent speakers include:
