Working in healthcare management is a demanding task. Healthcare managers have difficult job duties, such as balancing the budget while maintaining quality patient care. They must also have a comprehensive understanding of health policies, HMOs, risk assessment, and healthcare finances.
How can you prepare to take on healthcare management level jobs? The answer begins with your education. Most managers in healthcare have a master’s degree. Although some have a master’s in business administration, more frequently, healthcare managers have a master’s in healthcare administration, health sciences, public health, or long term care administration.
Often, there is even more training after you have obtained your master’s degree. Depending on the type of healthcare management you pursue, you may need to pass licensing exams, complete training programs, or take certification programs. The learning never stops when it comes to healthcare management.
If you think healthcare management is for you, be prepared to work long hours and weekends. A career in healthcare management will most likely be stressful, but it is equally rewarding, and there is a lot of room to advance. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, medical and health services management level positions are expected to grow 22% from 2010 to 2020.
