HCA Student Forum

The California State University Long Beach Health Care Administration Student Forum (HCASF) is a recognized campus student academic organization. HCASF provides a vehicle for constructive student involvement, recognition, and representation in the profession of health care administration. Its mission is to promote an environment conducive to educational and ethical development of personal and social skills for effective leadership in healthcare organizations.

Once you are enrolled in HCA 300, you are entered into the HCA Student Forum's organizational mailing list on BeachBoard. On BeachBoard, go to “My Organizations,” and search for or click on “HCA Students” to find information about upcoming meetings.

If you wish to learn more about and apply to become a member of the HCASF, go to the CSULB OrgSync website; both it and the HCASF BeachBoard organization have contact information for the HCASF officers and the faculty sponsor. These sites also contain information on HCA meetings, and, additionally, community events of interest to students preparing for careers in healthcare administration as well as for career and paid internship opportunities.
