Health care administration courses
Delivering health care requires the team work of professionals at many levels, from doctors and nurses to those in administration. To be an effective manager in a health care setting you must have excellent organizational skills, leadership abilities and a deep understanding of the health care system.
Health care administration courses can help you develop or refine your skills in order to have a greater impact in your role. You can study healthcare delivery systems, management theory as it applies to health care and the policies that impact the health industry. You can also examine human resource management, an important area for those at the administrative level.
Enroll in health care administration courses and learn about topics such as:
- The environmental influences that impact the health care industry.
- The impact of disease trends on the delivery of health care services.
- Legal perspectives in aging, including discrimination, elder abuse and advocacy.
- The organization and management of long-term care and assisted living facilities.
We also offer advanced courses looking at marketing in health care, laws and ethical issues along with the globalization of health care systems. These courses allow you to gain the in depth knowledge you need to be an effective administrator.
