Healthcare Services Management
Hiram College's strong liberal arts curriculum provides an excellent context for the healthcare services management major. The program combines the methodological approach in the required math and science courses with the theoretical and practical approaches in the required communication, psychology and management courses. As today's medical technologies become more complex and demanding, so do the larger ethical, humanistic issues that permeate healthcare professionals’ day-to-day practice.
Health services administration professionals need strong interpersonal as well as managerial skills to remain competitive in their healthcare careers. In addition to the required courses, sufficient elective course work is available each term for each student to tailor the program to his/her own career goals as well as personal and cultural enrichment. These elective courses include literature and medicine, medical ethics, literature and aging, and healthcare financial management.
