Health Care Management Option

Health Care Management is a program option designed to provide students with a general foundation in the principles and theories of management, needed by frontline or middle level supervisors in a health care unit. Additionally, an understanding of the organizational structure of the health care system, the financing of health care services in the United States, and knowledge of current health policies at local, state and federal levels.

The Health Care Management Option is designed for both potential health care personnel and currently practicing individuals that wish to continue their education.  About half of the students are employed in various health related roles. Since nearly all the students work during the day, most Health Science courses are offered in the late afternoon, evening or weekend and many meet only once a week. To keep the Health Science programs contemporary, many of the health science courses are taught by practicing professionals.
