Healthcare Management Jobs

Healthcare Management Job Overview

Healthcare managers, who are sometimes referred to as healthcare administrators or medical and health services managers, juggle a wide array of responsibilities. They plan, coordinate, and direct medical and health services. Additionally, they may manage an entire medical office or group of doctors. Alternately, they may manage a specific department or area of a larger facility. The most common job duties of healthcare managers include:

  • Communicating with doctors, staff members, and department leaders
  • Learning and implementing new regulations and ensuring that the facility complies with them
  • Taking steps to improve the quality of healthcare services that patients receive
  • Managing the medical facility’s finances and overseeing billing
  • Creating work schedules for other staff members
  • Keeping and organizing records of services
  • Representing the medical facility on governing boards and meetings

Candidates who enjoy taking on a high level of responsibility and managing with fairness and compassion will enjoy the world of healthcare management. Healthcare managers need to have a great bedside manner and be able to work under pressure. They need to have stellar analytical, interpersonal, and problem-solving skills.

Healthcare Management Job Education Requirements

Most healthcare managers have at least a bachelor’s degree, and it’s common for them to have a master’s degree. In fact, master’s degrees in long-term administration, public health, health services, or a related field will put candidates in a better position for acquiring the more competitive, desirable positions. One path that some healthcare managers do take is to attain a starting position after earning a bachelor’s degree, then taking night school courses to earn a master’s degree in the field. Both on-the-job experience and a high level of education are important factors when employers are considering candidates for healthcare management positions. Healthcare managers often work closely to help doctors and nurses best serve patients.
