1. Health Administration and Management Department
Like all businesses, the health care-related businesses need excellent management and leadership to be successful. As a Health Care Administrator, you may manage a single department or an entire health care facility. To facilitate clinical professional services and make effective decisions, health care administrators must understand basic business principles, and demonstrate strong leadership.
Entry-level professionals may be responsible for establishing and implementing the policies and objectives of a specific clinical area or department within a facility. They may be required to train and evaluate personnel, develop reports and budgets, and coordinate activities with other managers. With experience and an advanced degree, health care administrators may move into executive management positions in which they are responsible for facilities and equipment valued in the millions of dollars, as well as hundreds of employees.
