Make a healthy career choice
The Healthcare Management specialization prepares students for management roles in the healthcare field. Graduates can expect to qualify for leadership positions in hospitals, nursing homes, physician practices, public health departments, and imaging and laboratory services.
While enrolled in the program, students will complete coursework relating to current topics in health information systems, decision making, budgeting from the healthcare perspective, organizational behavior and communication, human resources and the emerging implications of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.
This program best aligns for students that hold an A.S. degree in a health-related program similar to the following A.S. degrees offered by Eastern Florida State College: Dental Assisting Technology and Management, Dental Hygiene, Emergency Medical Services, Health Information Technology, Medical Laboratory Technology, Nursing RN, Radiography, and Veterinary Technology. An A.A. degree from a regionally accredited institution is also acceptable for admission into this degree.
Students with healthcare experience and degrees in areas other than those listed above will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The admissions process follows the general bachelor's degree enrollment steps, but in addition, if you are applying for this track without an A.S. degree in a health sciences field, you must submit a Healthcare Experience Supplemental Information Form during the application process.
An Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree does not meet the minimum eligibility requirement for entry into this program. AAS degree holders who intend to transfer into the BAS program should consult with an academic advisor to review coursework and determine the best transfer options.
