The next generation of healthcare leaders will be required to have specialized knowledge and skills to compete, to lead and to succeed. Students can become part of this next generation of leadership by entering JSOM’s Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management degree program. It prepares students by combining the strength of seasoned academic researchers and experienced practitioners in the field.
Upon graduation, students can find opportunities in a number of healthcare jobs, ranging from imaging clinic manager to business leader of a physician practice.
Jindal School students must complete an internship as a requirement for their major. The Jindal School’s fully staffed Career Management Center (CMC), working in tandem with the University’s Career Center, helps students prepare for and seek internships, as well as post-graduation employment. Both centers are staffed with licensed counselors who provide students with strategies for mastering job interviews, writing professional cover letters and resumes and connecting with campus recruiters, among other services.
The introductory class on healthcare introduces students to the breadth and scope of the industry. Additional healthcare-specific classes focus on healthcare accounting, information systems, economics, law and regulatory environments.
Business classes include a variety of disciplines that are relevant to healthcare such as marketing, supply side management, information technology, organizational behavior, management methods in decision-making, operations management, international business and strategic planning. In addition, students will select from elective healthcare-specific classes including human resources, hospital administration and new classes that respond to a changing and dynamic healthcare environment.
In addition, the active student Healthcare Management Association creates opportunities for networking and introductions to healthcare leaders throughout the region. Prominent DFW healthcare professionals regularly visit campus to share their industry experience and check out up-and-coming talent.
Students can choose a double major in biology and healthcare management (BS) or molecular biology and healthcare management (BS).
