Statement of Purpose Prompt

The IHCM-BAS is an interdisciplinary program, integrating healthcare experience with management principles through a social justice, equity, and inclusion lens.

1. Understanding that the IHCM-BAS is an interdisciplinary program grounded in social justice, equity, and inclusion, describe and an issue or problem you have seen in your healthcare practicum, internship, volunteer, or work experience. How do you expect the skills learned during the IHCM-BAS to help address that issue or problem?

2. Explain what you learned from practicum, internship, volunteer, and/or work experiences and how those experiences make you a good candidate for this program.

*Please email your statement of purpose, along with your unofficial transcripts, to IHCM@edmonds.edu.
