This is a comprehensive program, which is designed to provide health professionals with the education to become administrators in health care agencies. The curriculum is directed toward developing the management, problem-solving, finance, and interpersonal skills that are necessary for careers in a variety of healthcare organizations. An additional intent of the program is to provide career advancement opportunities for those who are already employed in healthcare organizations.
As the backbone of healthcare systems, healthcare administrators take on the duties of overseeing vast expanses of medical personnel. As the structure and financing of the healthcare industry changes, healthcare administrators must be able to adapt to new environments. Projected employment growth of 17%, higher than average for all occupations, is expected in the industry over the next decade. This program is designed to help you acquire the leadership and management skills necessary to become a competent mid-level administrator within your organization.
