The program in Health Services Administration provides an economically and culturally diverse undergraduate student population with the critical knowledge and skills needed by health services managers who will work with clinicians to manage health care delivery systems, hospitals, organized physician groups, community health facilities (including ambulatory care facilities), nursing homes, extended care facilities, financing and insurance agencies, managed care organizations, and other organizations which either directly provide critical personal health care services or support the provision of those services.

This program serves a number of purposes:

  • To give students an enhanced capacity and opportunity to seek and obtain challenging administrative positions which allow them to plan, implement, and manage a wide variety of health services which are delivered in a comprehensive range of health services organizations and settings.

  • To provide students with an educational background which helps them to pursue a variety of health services career options, including certification and licensure options: for instance, an HSA major can help students meet the professional requirements which will make them eligible for admission to the New York State Licensing Examination for Nursing Home Administrators.

  • To prepare students for graduate study in Health Services Administration.
