Minor in Health Care Management
Students may seek an academic minor in health care management.
The minor in health care management complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by helping him or her to acquire skills and knowledge in the health care environment, leadership, decision making, professionalism, and business. The interdisciplinary approach combines coursework in gerontology and aging studies with traditional management and health care courses that help deal with the challenges of leadership along the path of professional development.
