The unique multi-disciplinary design of the curriculum places HCA students together with students from other health care disciplines.

Health Care Administration offers a wide array of professional opportunities in many different health care settings including hospitals, clinics, managed care providers, long-term care facilities, insurance companies, commercial vendors, and government agencies.
