Project Creates Position For Master’s Graduate

By Angie Norbeck, Business Program Chair.

Globe University Minneapolis graduate, Afton Glander, took her final master’s project to the next level when a new position was created by her employer for her based on her presentation.

Afton’s project included a review of patient appointments over the course of one year at a local orthopedic clinic, research of current studies, and interviews conducted to determine the most appropriate triage method for the clinic’s 200 new patients.

The organization’s leadership saw the potential that Afton and her project would provide to the clinic and a quality department was established based on the momentum created by her presentation.  Afton is now the quality coordinator, and works closely with the newly appointed quality manager to improve patient access to care while containing costs for the organization.  “I never envisioned that I would be going into quality and with the tools my instructor, Mr. John Jordan, provided to the class I am overseeing projects at work that are making an impact” said Glander.
