Like many other states, Colorado is suffering from a shortage of health care workers and has a high demand for qualified professionals. Colorado should see more than a 23 percent increase in the field. By the year 2019, it is expected that approximately 4,200 people will be employed as medical and health services managers, up from the 3,150 in 2009.
Health Admin Education in Colorado
The Colorado Masons’ Benevolent Fund Scholarships, MGMA Western Section Scholarships (specific to those intending to get a degree in a program related to medical practice management), and the Colorado Student Grants program are good places to start looking for financial aid in Colorado. In order to work in Colorado as a medical and health services manager, you must at least possess a bachelor’s degree in health services. Senior-level administrators often have a master’s degree and have to complete a state-sponsored training program as well as pass a licensing exam.
Outlook for Health Admin Careers in Colorado
If you have a master's degree, you are likely to earn slightly more than the Colorado medical and health services manager's mean annual income of $95,400 ( Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2010 data). More and more jobs are opening up in rural areas, making it easier to find work if living in a large city such as Denver is not important to you.
