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.

There are currently more than 315,500 Americans employed as healthcare managers, and more than 73,300 new healthcare management jobs will be created between now and 2022. This 23 percent job growth means that healthcare managers will be in high demand now and especially in the future.
