3 Credits

The Health Systems Analysis immersion held in the Greater New York City area on March 20–24, 2017 enabled students to critically examine health care delivery from the perspective of population health management. MHA@GW students conducted an in-depth analysis of one of the most sophisticated and innovative health care delivery systems in the country.  

Featured New York City Health Systems

Students visited various health systems during the New York City immersion, including:

  • Northwell Health, the nation’s 14th-largest health care system with 21 hospitals, 2,750 employed physicians and 450 ambulatory practices.
  • Ryan-NENA Community Health Center, a not-for-profit federally qualified health center (FQHC) that provides health services to diverse and underserved communities in the area.
  • VA NY Harbor Health Care System, which provides quality health care and compassionate services to veterans living in the five boroughs of New York City.
  • An academic medical center

Featured Speaker

During the immersion, students heard from Niyum Gandhi, the executive vice president and chief population health officer of the Mount Sinai Health System.

Explore NYC

When students were not immersed in the day-to-day activities, they were free to explore all that New York City had to offer in the spring. Students strolled through the budding trees and flowers in Central Park and the New York Botanical Gardens and dined at a number of the city’s highly acclaimed restaurants.
