Health Care Services and Management

Program Overview

Healthcare staff and managers are among the unsung heroes of the industry. Without them, the whole system would grind to a halt. If you are an organized and detail-oriented person who is good at taking charge while following rules and regulations, and who works well in a team-member environment, you should consider a career in healthcare services.

Our Health Care Services and Management program has several paths. It can prepare you for the specialized field of healthcare regulatory compliance — where you learn how to follow federal and state regulations to protect patient privacy and rights. The program can also teach you how to coordinate personnel and tasks in a unit. And if you are interested in advancing your current career, it can provide you with essential training for leadership, supervisory, and management positions.
