This program bridges two different disciplines and departments: Allied Health and Management. The Bachelor of Science in Health Care Management offers emphasis in most of the Allied Health majors offered at Oregon Tech. After the student has successfully completed their registry exam in their chosen allied health field, s/he may complete management courses. Students may choose to take the courses offered through the distance education program or the traditional style in the classroom. Students who complete this degree completion program will be awarded a Bachelor of Science in Health Care Management, with an emphasis in their specialty.
Student Preparation: Students must have successfully completed a registry or certification that is accredited in their chosen allied health field in order to achieve a degree in Health Care Management.
Degree Completion Program: The Health Care Management Program offers an online or classroom-based degree completion program. The program is offered by a web-based course management software and requires collaborative learning. Computer/Internet access is required. Each prospective student's academic and registry credits will be individually evaluated to determine acceptability of the coursework and the sequencing of the professional courses. Every student must meet the Oregon Tech general education requirements for graduation.
Graduation Requirements: Minimum graduation requirements for the B.S in Health Care Management are the successful completion of a recognized registry exam, licensure exam or completion of a certificate appropriate to the student's allied health major and all courses required for the B.S. degree.
