Healthcare and Medical Services Management
The expansion of healthcare coverage in the United States, along with an increased proportion of U.S. residents aged 65 and older, is expected to lead to marked growth in the healthcare and medical services sector. As the demand for health and medical services increases, so too will the need for skilled professionals who can administer and organize the delivery of these services. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has estimated that the demand for medical and health services administrators could increase by as much as 22% nationally by 2020, with a projected 24% increase in South Carolina.
At the College of Charleston, students who minor in Healthcare and Medical Services Management will receive a robust introduction to the laws and regulations that govern the U.S. healthcare system, as well as an understanding of fundamental management principles.
The courses in this program are designed not only to provide a beneficial credential to those seeking a career in healthcare administration, but also to complement a variety of majors and career pursuits, including business, computer and information systems, and public health.
