Make your difference in healthcare

You don’t need to go to medical school and become a doctor to make a significant difference in the delivery of healthcare. As a health administrator you can work as a leader behind the scenes with other healthcare staff to help ensure patients receive the best possible treatment. 

Healthcare administration can be an excellent choice for current healthcare professionals who seek the highest levels in their field but want to transition from clinical care into management and administration. Or, for those with an undergraduate major in the natural sciences, business, or informatics intrigued by the opportunity to join a new, rapidly growing field.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of medical and health services managers is expected to increase 32% from 2020-2030. Earning a Master of Science in Healthcare Administration (MSHA, or MHA) can help you qualify for these highly demanded positions.
