Students from MSB-Rochester participate in an award ceremony for the honor society Upsilon Phi Delta.
About the Honor Society
Upsilon Phi Delta is a national academic honor society for students in healthcare administration. The name is derived from the Greek words for health, care and administration (or leadership):
Uge?µ = “health”
front?? = “care”
Dieuq?nw = “to administer” or “to lead”
The founders of the society feel that Health is the objective of all our work; that Caring is an essential trait of all people in health care; and that Leadership is the essential trait of those who would lead and manage our healthcare systems.
The mission of the Upsilon Phi Delta Honor Society is to recognize, reward, and encourage academic excellence in the study of health administration.
The goals of the Society are as follows:
· To encourage interest in academic preparation for careers in health administration
· To promote activity that will elevate the standards, ideals, competence, and ethics of women and men preparing for careers in health administration and leadership
· To provide financial assistance through scholarships to outstanding students pursuing academic degrees that prepare individuals for careers in health administration and leadership
· To recognize, by means of granting honorary memberships, individuals who have made outstanding contribution to the profession
