This article is Open Access under the terms of the Creative Commons CC BY-NC-ND licence.

This article describes an innovative approach to developing and implementing a competency-based applied learning experience for graduate students enrolled in a health administration program. The specific integrative experience is referred to as the Quality Improvement/Health Information Systems (QI/HIS) Integrative Project. The project requires that students integrate concepts covered in both their quality improvement and health information systems courses. Included are a description of the project, the project outcomes for the past two years (including student, faculty, and preceptor feedback), and lessons learned. The QI/HIS Integrative Project is provided in the appendix as a template for faculty interested in adapting the assignment for use in their program.
