With the hospital industry growing each day, an increasing number of students and professionals are interested in the administrative careers that keep hospitals running.
Obtaining a graduate or undergraduate degree in healthcare management will give professionals the skills they need to become healthcare executives in many medical settings, including hospitals, health insurance companies, nursing homes, and other healthcare providers. There are numerous specializations to choose from within these settings, such as finance, human resources, marketing, nursing administration, information systems, risk management, and more.
Last year, U.S. News & World Report ranked the top graduate programs in the nation for healthcare management. Based on the results of peer assessment surveys sent to deans, other administrators, and faculty, each accredited program received a score from 1 (marginal) to 5 (outstanding). Those schools with the highest average scores appear in the rankings. For a quick guide to the top 13 healthcare management graduate programs in the country, check out the infographic below.
