MHA Student Association

The UAMS Master of Health Administration Student Association (MHASA) represents all students enrolled in the MHA program.  The MHASA is focused on service, education and professional development of future health care leaders.  The MHASA is involved in many areas, including professional development, networking opportunities, social activities, fundraising, community service, and philanthropic activities.  Students enrolled in the MHA program at UAMS automatically become members of the MHASA and are eligible to serve on committees and access the services offered.

The objectives of the MHASA are:

  • To provide organized student events that promote academic and professional growth as well as the development of social networks
  • To promote student led philanthropic endeavors benefitting the communities of Little Rock and Arkansas
