Health Systems Management Student Government and Professional Group


The mission of the Student Governing and Professional Board (SG&P) is to provide support for students enrolled in the Master of Science in Health Systems Management (HSM) Program at Rush University.  The intent of this group is to engage the ideas of the students, faculty, staff, and alumni to plan and create events and programs that will aid HSM students in professional and personal development.

The group is entirely student-run and meets biweekly to discuss current issues facing students within the HSM program.  SG&P board members provide representation on HSM departmental committees to contribute student perspectives as well as to report to the SG&P Board.  All students enrolled in the Department of Health Systems Management are eligible to apply for the SG&P Board.

The board meets to develop and plan events for HSM students, review issues facing the various departmental committees, and discuss other items potentially affecting HSM students.  Attendance to SG&P meetings is open to all HSM students and faculty who are interested in voicing their opinions and concerns regarding the HSM program and any of its committees or organizations.  The board also embraces applicable professional organizations and student interest areas.
