A student from Lipscomb University’s graduate program has been selected for Tennessee Hospital Association’s (THA) Agenda 21 Internship Program. 

Natalie Browning is among eight students from schools across the country participating in a 12-week supervised learning experience for qualified graduate students interested in healthcare administration or a related field. Browning, who is pursuing a Master of Health Administration (MHA) through Lipscomb’s College of Business, will intern at both Riverview Regional Medical Center, in Carthage, Tennessee, and Trousdale Medical Center, in Hartsville, Tennessee.

Lipscomb University’s MHA program is an immersive learning experience designed for individuals already working in healthcare or looking to pivot to that industry. The degree’s integrative learning environment and instruction model ensures students gain real-world experience and mentorship. Additionally, cohorts complete a global health care course to increase students’ global perspective. 

“The Agenda 21 Internship Program has operated for more than 20 years with the mission of providing minority students with unique professional development opportunities in Tennessee hospitals,” said Karizma Whitfield, Agenda 21 program manager at THA.

Designed to increase diversity in hospital executive leadership, the Agenda 21 Internship Program furthers interns’ exposure, knowledge and skills preparing them for future career success in the healthcare industry. Through close work with administrators and staff, Browning will gain hands-on experience as part of the hospital’s management team. 

Applications for the Agenda 21 Internship program are accepted in the fall semester each year and students are placed the following spring semester with THA member hospitals for their summer internship. Learn more about the Agenda 21 Internship Program.
