Health Care Administration
One of Alma’s newest programs, debuting in 2011, Health Care Administration is designed to prepare students for entry-level and mid-level positions in the business and administration side of the health professions, including hospitals, nursing homes, physician practices, home care organizations, pharmaceutical firms and other related organizations.
It features courses in financial and managerial accounting, economics, health care finance and management, and strategic planning in health care as well as hands-on internship opportunities locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
Students will complete a senior capstone project that includes active involvement in researching and solving real-world problems related to health care administration. Off-campus experiences will include placements at local health care facilities.
Alma College is seeking program accreditation with the Association of University Programs in Health Administration.
