The University of Wyoming’s Master of Science in Health Services Administration (MSHSA) degree program recently selected Jen Paintin as its new program coordinator.
The MSHSA degree program is an accredited online program that is offered through the UW School of Pharmacy in the College of Health Sciences. The program provides educational opportunities for new or midcareer pharmacists, other health care professionals and graduate students from multiple disciplines to advance their careers.
Paintin began her new role Aug. 3. As program coordinator, she will work closely with Elliott Sogol, UW School of Pharmacy director of postgraduate education and continuing education, to research complex problems, inquiries and situations, and recommend alternative solutions. Paintin also will prepare detailed reports and documentation; provide logistical support for the continuing education and MSHSA programs; develop, coordinate and administer student enrichment within the MSHSA program; and provide individual student consultation and problem-solving.
“We are excited to have Jen join our team,” Sogol says. “She brings a wealth of knowledge from different areas of the university, and she will be an asset to our students, faculty and the program overall. Her dedication to helping others will add to our overall approach of providing the highest level of services to our students.”
Paintin’s professional interests include supporting students in their academic experience and assisting them with achieving their educational goals. She will advise and counsel students, and facilitate and pursue opportunities that will enhance the general welfare of students within the MSHSA program.
“I plan to provide leadership and advising for student leadership organizations,” Paintin says. “I also plan to coordinate leadership training opportunities with other program directors and assistant deans.”
She says one of her goals is to coordinate services and programs with other university departments to ensure smooth delivery of services, coordinated program efforts and reduced duplication of efforts.
Paintin earned her bachelor’s degree in communication from UW in 2010. She is a fifth-generation Wyoming resident.
