SHSP Student Health Care Executives

Similar to the mission of the New York Medical College (NYMC) School of Health Sciences and Practice (SHSP), the mission of Student Health Care Executives (StuHe) is to help prepare tomorrow’s public health leaders to preserve, protect and improve the health of individuals, families and communities through education, investigation, practice and service. Our goal is to partner with our faculty to help educate ourselves and fellow students, equip them to serve as public health practitioners and imbue them with an understanding of the cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic influences on health and disease. 

StuHe was started in 1999 as a student chapter of the Association of American College of Health Care Executives (ACHE). StuHe mostly consists of students from the SHSP but is also open to students from all NYMC schools. The club was formed with the purpose of providing a network for students in public health to meet and exchange ideas on local, national and international levels. StuHe members have opportunities to participate in community service events, networking and presenting at conferences. 

StuHe members follow the principles of equity and integrity in activities and seek to collaborate with the local communities, including health departments, as well as other health-related community organizations throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond. 

StuHe members will also have the opportunity to participate in the activities of the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI), as the SHSP has the distinction of being named a Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Hub for Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being, for a three-year period that began on June 1, 2021.

StuHe Faculty Advisors Padmini Murthy, M.D., M.P.H., M.S., FAMWA, FRSPH, and Amy Ansehl, D.N.P., M.S.N., RN, FNP-BC, are identifying programs and student activities that meet the objectives of SDG to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being and will be shared with the UNAI.

“This is a great opportunity for our students to put the principles of public health into practice,” says Dr. Ansehl.

“Now, more apparent than ever, public health does not stop at the border. The honor of serving as an international hub is a logical extension of our College’s 162-year-old mission and a great tribute to the tireless efforts of Drs. Murthy and Ansehl, who have established this extraordinary partnership with the global community," says Robert W. Amler, M.D., M.B.A., dean of the SHSP and vice president for government affairs.
