What is healthcare management?

Healthcare management, or healthcare administration, is the leadership and management of healthcare systems and entities. Healthcare management can involve overseeing healthcare networks in various areas or managing processes in one place, like a hospital or medical department.1

Healthcare managers share many functions with managers from other industries. They track progress toward goals, increase efficiency by communicating with team members and coordinate to ensure the team can complete the essential functions.

What can I do with a bachelor’s in healthcare management?

A degree in healthcare administration can open doors to more executive roles in healthcare. A B.S. in Healthcare Management will help you understand the processes that help people get the care they need. After completing your degree, you can work in management roles within hospitals, insurance firms, or specialized departments. You can also pursue a career as a chief nursing officer, medical director, or hospital manager.
