Courses provide the opportunity to examine future national policy goals and their legal implications, as well as to gain an advanced level of understanding of the financing, management, and reimbursement processes.

The Health Care Management program is committed to exhibiting the highest professional and ethical standards, addressing the needs of both individuals and health care organizations, providing health care education to the local community, and encouraging participation in community services. The program is also dedicated to contributing to the field through publication and scholarly activities.
