Health Management & Policy
As a member of our alumni family, you are vitally important to the quality of our Health Management and Policy (HMP) programs and to the success of HMP's graduates. Alumni regularly visit the department, serve as guest lecturers or adjunct instructors on timely topics, and collaborate with faculty on research projects. They often serve as summer internship preceptors, conduct mock interviews with our job seekers, and turn to HMP when recruiting permanent professional employees.
HMP is now turning to you to ask for your help in recruiting a modest number of high quality students into its various degree programs. With your help, we will be able to find students who reflect the excellence and professionalism of HMP and all of its alumni.
Beyond recruiting new students, there are many other ways to contribute to our continuing success. As a graduate of HMP, you can give back to HMP when and how you choose. Maybe you would like to serve on a committee, lead a special recruitment event, or become a mentor to current students. With several programs and commitment levels available, we'll find the right opportunity for you.
Should you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us. Also, we would like to receive updates regarding any moves, accomplishments and events in your professional life. Please contact us at HMP.Alumni.Updates@umich.edu

Dr. Wayne Lerner Receives 2013 ACHE Gold Medal Award
Dr. Wayne Lerner (MHA '73, DrPH '88) was presented the 2013 Gold Medal Award at the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) Congress in Chicago on March 11, 2013.
The Gold Medal Award is ACHE’s highest honor bestowed on outstanding leaders. The purpose of this award is to identify Fellows of the American College of Healthcare Executives who best exemplify leadership at the organizational, local, state/provincial and national levels. The Gold Medal Award recognizes individuals who go beyond the confines of their own organization to continually contribute to the improvement of healthcare services and community health.
Lerner has served ACHE in many capacities, including on the Council of Regents from 2000 to 2004. A member of ACHE since 1974, Lerner co-founded the Young Administrators of Chicago in 1976, which ultimately became the Chicago Health Executives Forum and was made an independent ACHE chapter in 2004.
