Best Health/Health Care Administration/Management colleges in Connecticut 2021

According to the Association of University Programs in Health Administration, degree programs in either health care administration or health care management typically offer students three areas of focus: general management, specialist training, or a specific focal point within the industry. Students will learn the fundamentals of overseeing health services and how to develop, plan, and manage health care operations within health care facilities. They will also develop the necessary basic oral and written communication, problem solving, and managerial skills. Typical courses cover health care system operations and management, business policy, health care economics, behavioral science, health care finance, public relations, information systems, financial management, law and regulations, and health care marketing.

Career opportunities can be found in nursing homes, clinics, mental health organizations, private practices, research institutions, hospices, and hospitals. The annual median pay in 2010 for medical and health service managers was more than $80,000 for those with at least a bachelor?s degree. The health care industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the nation because of aging baby boomers, increasing average lifespan, health care reform, and the advancement of medicine technology. Dedicated health administrators and managers are essential in maintaining and improving health care.
