HHAO Student Organization

The Auburn University Health and Hospital Administration Organization (HHAO) is a student-lead group of Health Service Administration majors and pre-majors. HHAO consist of students from every class (freshmen – senior) enrolled in the HADM curriculum. HHAO meets once a month to network with, and listen to guest speakers discuss various topics related to Health Services Administration. Guest speakers are leading professionals in their field and discuss topics such as:

Human Resource management
Hospital Management
Medical Practice Management
Health Information Systems & Technology
How to Get a Job/ Preparing Resumes

HHAO also promotes opportunities for students to attend professional association meetings at the local, state and national level, and hosts an annual end of the year event for all HADM majors. Annual awards given by the department are announced at the event, which is attended by faculty and students, and students are recognized for other accomplishments including induction into the UPD Honorary Society.

HHAO charges membership dues set by the HHAO officers. The first meeting of the year is held in September.
