Intersession Trips

You and your classmates will participate in a January class trip for each of the two years of the program. In even years, you will go to New York City, where you will observe and interact with practitioners in teaching hospitals and urban medical centers. Through presentations, tours and possibly shadowing experiences with Sloan alumni, you will develop an appreciation for the management challenges faced by these institutions. The following year, you will go to Washington, D.C., where you will meet with health policymakers, lobbyists and advocacy groups to learn firsthand how health policy is crafted in this country.
