Healthcare Administration Schools and Training Programs

As with any type of business, the business of medical care requires trained management personnel. Health services and health care managers are responsible for planning and coordinating healthcare delivery. Some health care administrators are specialists, supervising a specific practice area or department, while others are generalists, responsible for an entire health care facility.

Health Care Administration and Management Careers

Health care administrators face unique challenges due to the changing nature of patient care, and the expected increase in the need for health care services when baby boomers retire. Health care delivery is affected by numerous regulatory concerns that must be addressed. Managers are under constant pressure to hold down costs, and must work to improve efficiency and increasingly rely on techniques such as managed care and outpatient services.

Healthcare managers have to be good decision makers. They frequently have responsibility for a physical plant with expensive, specialized equipment, and hundreds or thousands of employees. An understanding of finance, information systems, human relationships and leadership skills is essential to a successful career.
