Healthcare Management Program

New for fall 2009!
This fall, Champlain College will launch its new Healthcare Management Program. The program will include a full spectrum of professional certificates on the undergraduate and graduate levels as well as a Bachelor’s Completer Degree (for students who have already earned a 2-year Associates Degree) and a Master’s of Science degree.

This program was designed to meet the enormous job growth in the healthcare sector which is expected to outpace that of the overall economy over the next decade. Employment of medical and health services managers is expected to grow 16% from 2006 to 2016, faster than average for all occupations. Increases in medical innovations, as well as challenges in controlling costs, while maintaining high quality care, are driving the demand for managers in this industry.

Building on our strengths in management and information technology, Champlain’s new comprehensive program in Healthcare Management focuses on management in the healthcare environment, performance management, and information systems as strategic tools for quality improvement and cost containment.

The program which was built with the involvement of a wide range of industry representatives and is designed to meet the current and future workforce needs of this growing industry. For more information about this program or to enroll this fall, please contact Dr. Mika Nash, Associate Dean.
