Concentration in health care administration available at Baker University

Baldwin City, Kan. — The health care industry is one of fastest growing job markets in the United States. In response to the need for highly qualified managers and administrators, Baker University has developed courses designed for full-time working adults interested in acquiring knowledge, skills and abilities in health care administration.Baker-arch1

The 15-credit hour administration focused concentration includes interactive and convenient online courses on the American health care system; fundamentals of health care administration; health care policy and politics; health care ethics; and information systems for health care management. The concentration can be included within a Baker undergraduate or graduate business degree, or taken as open enrollment courses.

“The concentration will provide a rigorous cutting edge foundation for persons interested in health care administrator roles,” said Kathryn Ballou, Ph.D., special assistant to the president for health sciences expansion and professor of health sciences. “Students will focus deeply on one course at a time, and learn from credentialed faculty with experience and advanced degrees in health care systems and administration.”

Online classes begin on March 26. Expansion to include on-ground courses is planned for next year at Baker’s campus locations in Overland Park, Kan.; Topeka, Kan.; Wichita, Kan.; Kansas City, Mo.; and Lee’s Summit, Mo.
