Southwestern College to Offer Healthcare Administration Major
This month, Southwestern College Professional Studies begins offering a new major in Healthcare Administration. This bachelor’s program is designed for individuals who have an allied health diploma or associate degree or are already working or preparing to work in the healthcare industry.
“This major will benefit the growing need for specialized education in the healthcare industry,” says Gail Cullen, Director of Academic Affairs. It shares much of the same core curriculum with a business administration major, but with a heavy emphasis toward healthcare systems.
The focus of the major is on managing resources and developing skills in financial management and healthcare policy administration. It is being developed in alignment with the criteria of the Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA), a global network of colleges, universities, faculty, individuals and organizations dedicated to the improvement of health care delivery through excellence in Health Administration Education.
Deb Stockman, Director of Marketing & New Media for Professional Studies says, “Graduates are likely to advance in healthcare organizations such as medical practice organizations, hospitals, clinics, long-term care facilities, health insurance companies, managed care organizations or community health providers.”
