Aramark Innovation 2018 Grant Winners

CAHME and Aramark are proud to announce the winners of the grants to CAHME-accredited programs also served by Aramark. CAHME and Aramark share a goal to drive innovation and excellence in healthcare management education. We are grateful for Aramark’s generous support which will fund a range of experiences for students in CAHME-accredited programs. Grants are awarded for initiatives that support participation of healthcare management students in research, seminars, case study competitions, and other related activities.

CAHME and Aramark are pleased to announce eight winners of the first CAHME/Aramark Innovation Grants. Because of the high volume and quality of applications, the number of winners was expanded from four to eight. Two grants have been awarded $5,000 each, while six will receive $3,660 each.

“When CAHME and Aramark announced the grant program earlier this year, we knew we wanted to recognize innovative ideas in improving graduate healthcare management education,” said Anthony Stanowski, DHA, FACHE, president and CEO of CAHME. “It was gratifying to have so many applications for support, and we are grateful for Aramark’s generosity in expanding the number of winners.”

A blue-ribbon panel of healthcare and Aramark executives reviewed the applications. Panelists included :

  1. Jack Lynch, President and Chief Executive Officer, Main Line Health System
  2. David McCombs, Vice President of ERP/Supply Chain Operations, Bon Secours Health System, Inc.
  3. Doug Silverstein, President, Evanston Hospital NorthShore University HealthSystem
  4. Madeline Bell, President and Chief Executive Officer, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
  5. Victor Crawford, Chief Operating Officer, Healthcare, Facilities, and Higher Education, Aramark

This year, we are able to offer eight grants. The winners are:

Program Description Award
     
The George Washington University and
University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences
Developing interview skills $5,000
University of Memphis Expand professional leadership training for students $5,000

In funding the grants, Mr. Crawford noted “Aramark is committed to supporting the development of future leaders in healthcare. Encouraging opportunities for healthcare management students to explore and apply innovative thinking will foster better healthcare experiences for the patients of tomorrow.”

CAHME, along with Aramark, congratulates the winning programs and believes the students benefiting from these grants will be better prepared to serve the healthcare industry and the community in the future.

Applications for the next round of grants will be available in the summer of 2018.

Case Competitions

Case competitions are ways for students to apply the skills learned in the classroom to analyze a business challenge and recommend a course of action. Case competition judges are frequently leaders in industry who serve to question and evaluate the teams like a board of directors. While not a typical part of a curriculum, case competitions provide students with the ability to network with other future professionals from leading schools, to meet high-profile executives, and to experience the pressures of the real world in a learning environment. Some case competitions also have significant prize awards for the top performing teams.

Below is a table of selected case competitions, and the CAHME programs that came in the top three spots. Certain competitions are open only to CAHME-accredited programs. Other competitions are open to other schools. CAHME-accredited programs typically excel because of the robust training and high curriculum standards.
