Program Details

Students wishing to pursue higher education in the field of healthcare management may be interested in participating in Allied Health Institutes’ online Associate of Science degree program. The program is designed to introduce students to the foundations of health and medicine, while also emphasizing management practices. Graduated students should have the ability to provide and educate others with proper health care practices as well as the desire for lifelong learning in the healthcare field.

An AS degree with a concentration in healthcare management is a broad interdisciplinary area of study that encompasses many attributes to the efficient operation of a healthcare organization. Management is a crucial dynamic in the healthcare industry, providing leadership and administration skills in organizations such as hospitals, health care systems, and public health systems. Successful students in the management concentration should be able to perform as leaders in many professional institutions supplementing the medical staff in non-patient duties. The dynamic role of a healthcare manager includes, but is not limited to, the strategic and efficient operation of policy analysis, finance, accounting, budgeting, human resources, or marketing. The curriculum also parallels the health management courses with general education courses in essential topics of study such as communications, humanities, and social sciences. Students may blend the core and general education courses to perform as an effective and efficient leader in the competitive healthcare industry.

The core curriculum is comprised of courses essential for success as a manager in a hospital, clinic, physician’s office or other healthcare setting. The courses give students knowledge in areas of anatomy & physiology, pathophysiology, medical terminology, and medical front office procedures including finance, billing and coding, and management techniques. Graduates should be able to apply the learned fundamentals when assessing situations needing critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
