Health Care Management

The Health Care Management major promotes an understanding of complex, evolving, and integrated health care and reimbursement systems. Students analyze perspectives, methods, and values associated with the delivery and financing of health services. They evaluate client needs, fiscal constraints, management practices, ethical principles, public policies, promotional strategies, and system designs to discover ways to meet the growing demands for affordable, efficient, responsible, and effective health care. The major promotes organizational insight and managerial ability for those who desire leadership positions in health-related enterprises. It is especially suitable for health care professionals with technical/clinical degrees, nurses, reimbursement specialists, utilization review professionals, medical office or managed care personnel, and health insurance providers. The Health Care Management major offers two tracks. The Clinical Track will enable those who currently have a registry or license (e.g., radiologist, registered nurse, etc.) to transfer in course work and complete the core courses. A minimum of 30 clinical/laboratory hours or registry/certifications are required to pursue the clinical track.  The Non-Clinical Track is designed to assist individuals interested in health care management/administration who do not hold a clinical license or registry. Individuals interested in administrative, management, sales, insurance, and reimbursement professions related to health care will find valuable preparation in the Non-Clinical Track.
