Health care is one of the largest and most rapidly growing industries in the country. Recent reports continue to show that the health care industry needs professionally trained managers. Existing trends, such as the aging population, increasing health care technology, rising costs, and the expansion of managed care, all further suggest that this need will continue to expand in the years ahead.
Most health management and policy graduates initially embark on entry-level management positions in public and private health care organizations: hospitals, nursing facilities, ambulatory care settings, insurers, home health agencies, health insurance companies, consulting firms, public health departments, and governmental health agencies.
Some pursue careers in more policy-oriented positions in professional associations. Career growth into mid- or executive-level positions depends on many factors including one's individual talents, preferences, and interests. Higher-level positions generally require a graduate degree.
Graduates in health management and policy often pursue graduate school in business, public administration, law, policy, public health, or selected clinical programs.
