Not everyone in the health services industry is a medical professional or clinician. From healthcare facilities and clinics to medical offices and hospital systems, there is a growing need for well-trained healthcare management and support professionals. Make your move with a healthcare administration associate degree from Bryant & Stratton College.
Graduates of our Health Services Administration associate degree program gain the education and credentials necessary to pursue entry-level positions throughout the healthcare industry. Coursework for this 60-credit associate degree program covers math, medical ethics, and other business medicine topics. These courses prepare students to pursue relevant certifications as well as job opportunities managing various aspects within a doctor’s office or other healthcare venues such as hospitals, nursing homes, and long-term-care facilities. Specifically, students will gain a foundation to handle business and administrative duties that include controlling finances and payroll, staff hiring and management, managing electronic medical records, administrative coordination, and more.

Or they can use their healthcare administration associate degree as a first step toward a bachelor’s degree, such as the Health Services Administration bachelor’s degree offered at Bryant & Stratton College.
