The Power of Opportunity

The program gave me a solid foundation of what healthcare delivery is, all of its components, and how they are interconnected. It is very focused on healthcare delivery, policy, the economics of healthcare, and also the implication of the legal system. It prepares you well to navigate the system as a Healthcare Administrator and gives you the knowledge of how its different parts connect. This insight is really valuable." Rafael Piloto Carriaga

The faculty is wonderful and offers a lot of good support. I felt that I always received the help that I needed. I have really good memories in every aspect, from finance to leadership courses, internships and fieldwork. I also felt a lot of connection with the Public Health aspect. It allowed me to fully understand our diverse community here in South Florida, with Latin culture being the predominant one, and it really helped me understand things I didn’t know before. That gave me a really solid understanding of how to work with my community, and coincidentally at Buen Pastor Medical Center, where I currently work, about 80-85% of the patients are Hispanic. I learned through the Public Health education at Barry what it takes for this population to be successful in our community." Fabio Flores

I never really did comprehend or understand the concept of "opportunity" until I started my graduate studies in the Masters of Health Services Administration program. Before this merit I lacked an awareness that potentially cost me dozens of memorable and profound experiences. Since my appreciation of this notion I have been asked to guest speak among professionals in the health industry, guest speak at orientation, published a "healthy story" in the health department's yearly book, and was fortunate enough to attend the 139th American Public Health Association conference in Washington, D.C. I humbly and deeply feel grateful for all the opportunities that have been presented to me by the faculty and staff at Barry University's Health Services Administration program and promise to take with me a life-long lesson that will reflect positively on this fine institution."
