This program bridges two different disciplines and departments: Allied Health and Management. The curriculum is designed to prepare future health care managers for planning, directing, and coordinating medical and health services. Graduates may manage an entire facility, or a specific clinical area or department, or manage a medical practice for a group of providers.
Created for those students interested in both business and health care administration, the Administration Option is designed to prepare graduates for entry and mid-level management positions. Based on a core of common management courses, the program builds a broader base of understanding of the health care system in the U.S., its systems, policies and challenges. Embedded in the program is a minor in medical sociology, which enhances student's understanding of health and well-being in society.
For those students with a current state and/or national registry or certification in an allied health field, the Clinical Option prepares Allied Health professionals for advancement to management or supervisory roles.
