Share your preliminary thoughts on the healthcare administration issue that you will focus on for your capstone project. A good place to start thinking about a topic is your personal experience. Consider problems you have experienced professionally that interest you enough to do substantial research.

You may link your proposed topic with your current internship, employment, or previous work in another course that may be expanded on for the capstone project in this course. Your instructor will provide feedback to help you refine and focus your proposed topic.

Examples might include financial challenges, implementation of healthcare reform, government mandates, patient safety and quality, and care for the uninsured, among others. Determine whether the issue involves a specific target population or populations. If so, be sure that the target population’s need you investigate is supported by literature.
