HEALTHCARE MANAGEMENT (AAS)

Did you know that there’s a true business side to our healthcare system with a whole team of professionals working behind the scenes to make sure our providers are able to deliver quality healthcare services? Healthcare Management encompasses the business of the healthcare field, and it involves everything from budgeting to quality improvement, project planning, performance assessment, and even marketing. Every day, healthcare managers work directly with medical professionals to facilitate the daily operations of their organization and ensure health systems have what they need to run efficiently every day.

YOU MIGHT LIKE THIS PROGRAM IF:

  • A career that combines the excitement of business and the ingenuity of healthcare is something you would enjoy.
  • Leveraging your problem solving, communication, and planning skills to help others would be fulfilling for you.
  • You’d eventually like to obtain your bachelor’s (or master’s!) degree, but earning your associate’s degree and getting some work experience under your belt first sounds like a good idea.
