The program’s focus is upon the relationship between theory and practice through the identification and resolution of problems unique to health care. Students will gain relevant knowledge in research, leadership, strategy, healthcare quality, effective communication, human resources, information systems management, health law, and finance.
Students can elect to have open electives or focus their studies towards specific program concentrations such as Practice/Clinical Management, which prepares students to manage the organization and operation of the business aspects of a health care provider’s office (including those of physicians, dentists, hospitals, clinics, and others); Long Term Care Administration, which prepares students for employment opportunities in skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, group homes and hospices; and Sports and Fitness Management, which prepares students for a variety of entry and mid-level management positions within the broad field of health and fitness (such as sports promotion, corporate wellness, personal training, health promotion, and sports club management.)
Practical experiences, including the optional Applied Learning Experience course, allow students the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge gained in the classroom to the field of practice.
