Last week, HPM students continued UCLA’s streak of fantastic showings at healthcare management case competitions! A team including HPM students Caitlyn Penny (MBA-MPH) and Kumar Ghandi (MD-MPH) won the Second Annual Cleveland Clinic Case Competition by impressing Cleveland Clinic executives with their strategy for Cleveland Clinic Florida. Their strategic plan, which included doubling down on reputation and success in integrated care, impressed the judges with its specificity and solid financial analysis.

Specifically aimed for MS and PhD students, HPM 424 will teach you to conceptualize and write a fundable reserach proposal and to understand different funding mechanisms and the grant review process. This course will be taught by Drs. Roshan Bastani and Emmeline Chuang. For specific questions, email the instructors at: or

We are always proud of students, but we would like to take a moment to especially recognize some students who will be starting Administrative Fellowships after graduation.
Congratulations and we wish you the best of luck!

Rosenstock met with students to discuss bioethics in medicine and research in the university library’s “American Corner” — a space dedicated to cultural understanding through conversation.

The Affordable Care Act aims to move the nation toward universal coverage. But Fielding School experts point out that for some immigrants, basic, quality health care is no closer to becoming a reality.
