Master of Hospital - Health Administration - Management

Hospital Administration or Health Administration is the field relating to leadership, management, and administration of hospitals, hospital networks, and health care systems. Health care administrators are considered health care professionals.

The discipline is known by many names, including health management, healthcare management, health systems management, health care systems management, and medical and health services management.

The Master of Health / Hospital Administration is a master's-level professional degree granted to students who complete a course of study in the knowledge and competencies needed for careers in healthcare administration, involving the management of hospitals and other health services organizations. Programs can differ according to setting; although practitioner-teacher model programs are typically found in colleges of medicine or allied health, classroom-based programs can be found in colleges of business or public health.

Accredited programs of study typically require students to complete applied experiences as well as course work in areas such as population health, healthcare economics, health policy, organizational behavior, management of healthcare organizations, healthcare marketing and communications, human resource management, information systems management and assessment, operations assessment and improvement, governance, leadership, statistical analysis and application, financial analysis and management, and strategy formulation and implementation. The degree program is designed to give graduates of health disciplines (in particular) greater understanding of management issues and prepare them for senior management roles, and is awarded by many American, European and Australian universities. The degree traditionally focuses on health administration at the local, state, and federal level as well as in the nonprofit sector. This contrasts with the general Master of Business Administration or the Master of Public Administration degrees.
