About OU’s Bachelor of Arts in Health Care Management (Clinical)
Are you interested in earning a degree in health care administration? The clinical track of Ottawa University’s accelerated, online Bachelor of Arts in Health Care Management will help current health care professionals learn what it takes to keep their institutions operating efficiently and fiscally, so they can continue helping people live better, healthier lives. Healthcare is a growing field, in every way. While there continues to be great demand for doctors, nurses and other medical practitioners, there is also a rising need for the office professionals and administrators that maintain health care operations. These are roles you could fill by earning OU’s health care management degree.
This accelerated, online Health Care Management program promotes an understanding of complex, evolving and integrated health care and reimbursement systems. Students analyze perspectives, methods, and values associated with the delivery and financing of health services. They learn to evaluate client needs, fiscal constraints, management practices, ethical principles, public policies, and promotional strategies of the health care institution. System designs to discover ways to meet the growing demands for affordable, efficient, responsible, and effective health care are considered. This major promotes organizational insight and managerial ability for those who desire leadership positions in health-related organizations. It is especially suitable for health care professionals with technical/clinical training.
The clinical track enables those who currently have a registry or license (for example, a radiologist, occupational therapist or registered nurse) to transfer in a minimum of 30 hours of clinical/laboratory coursework and then complete the necessary core courses to earn the degree.
This concentration specifically caters to professionals with an associate degree in a clinical field or 30 credit hours in professional clinical training.

Perspective on the Health Care Management Degree
“Medical and health services managers plan, direct, coordinate, and supervise the delivery of health care. These works are either specialists in charge of a specific clinical department or generalists who manage an entire facility or system.”
