Health Care Administration



The Health Care Administration program has been specifically designed to provide students with the core competencies and skill sets health care providers are looking for their managers and administrations to possess in order to be successful.  The core curriculum offers students in principles of health care administration, health care economics, legal aspects of health care administration, health care finance and strategic planning, policy formulation and implementation.  Today's health care manager/administrator must possess a wide range of skills to be employable in a variety of different types of health care settings and levels of care facilities.  Critical thinking and problem-solving skills will be developed and enhanced through case study analysis and assessment of problematic situations commonly faced in current health services organizations.  The major premise of the development of a seamless and integrated health care delivery system will be a primary focus of coursework taken in the program's core curriculum with an emphasis on the effective management of the change process towards the successful achievement of work unity, departmental and organizational goals within a health services organization.

Gainful Employment Certificate Programs


Federal regulations require institutions to disclose to prospective and current students certain information about Gainful Employment Programs.  A "Gainful Employment" program is a certificate program that leads to gainful employment in a recognized occupation.  Ursuline College currently offers some certificate programs that meet the Gainful Employment definition – these are the only certificate programs in which students would be eligible for federal student loans and other aid.  Information about the certificate programs, including related occupations, graduation rates, median loan debt for program completers, on-time completion rates and other pertinent facts is available on the following documents and on the specific academic program’s web page.  Disclosure
