Health Care Management B.S.

Health Care Management B.S.

Program Overview: 

The health care industry is changing more rapidly than almost any other segment of the U.S. economy. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that employment of medical and health service managers will increase 23% from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations.

The rapidly aging population in the United States and massive proposed changes in federal health care reform are contributing to the high demand for health care management jobs. These individuals must be able to work closely with medical staff to plan, direct, and coordinate the delivery of health care.
