Minor in Health Care Management

Minor Overview

        Spring Hill College offers a concentration in Health Care Management, and a minor in Health Care Management (HCM).  The HCM concentration is designed to prepare students for various careers in the health care industry, which is one of the most significant industries in the US economy.  Employment opportunities include positions with hospitals; public health programs; pharmaceutical companies; medical laboratories; nursing facilities; surgical facilities; and health education and training companies.  The concentration will also prepare students to enter graduate or professional school (MBA, MPH, MHCM).

        Undergraduates in the HCM concentration become better prepared to join the healthcare industry.  In addition to the College core requirements required of all SHC graduates, students in HCM will complete the lower-division and upper-division core body of knowledge requirements for the BS in Business Administration, then move on to complete the 18 hour concentration in HCM.  This concentration builds on business foundational courses to provide the student with a tighter focus of management in the health care setting.
