ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Health Care Management program is designed to prepare students for careers in administration of health care services. The curriculum provides an understanding of U.S. health care organizations, a population health orientation emphasizing health equity initiatives using financial and organizational metrics, and analytical and technology competencies for research development, organizational management and/or program evaluation. Depending on a student’s interest, graduate training in health administration is recommended after completing this course of study and after the student has worked in the field for 1–2 years. Students interested in post acute and long-term care service administration have the option of completing a specialized track in the major.
