My time with UPMC’s Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine provided nothing short of invaluable, project-based experiences where I grew not only as a student, but as a professional. While working towards my Master of Health Administration at the University of Pittsburgh, I was able to partner with UPMC and immerse myself in countless projects involving CRNA workforce operations, OR staffing, and many areas of the Chronic Pain Department. UPMC provided me opportunities to interact with multiple executive leadership levels and support the vision of being a national anesthesiology, perioperative, and pain medicine leader through a culture of compassion, teamwork, learning, discovery, and innovation (University of Pittsburgh, 2023). The outcomes of the following projects revolve around changing the culture of the healthcare workforce by taking the burden off administrative staff, physicians, and other leaders, as well as creating an environment of employee appreciation and career promotion. The competencies developed throughout my work with the Department of Anesthesiology closely aligned with those of the Master of Health Administration and will allow me to join the hospital operations workforce with a confident mindset.
