Healthcare Administration Education in Arizona

Many health services administration Arizona programs lead to technical certificates. Technical certificates are similar to Associate's programs in their scope and level of training, although they are often considerably shorter than Associate's degree programs since they do not often require general education coursework.

With a technical certificate, you may work in entry-level supervision and management, health information technology, and administrative assisting.

The other type of graduate certificate commonly offered in health management is a graduate certificate in healthcare administration. Arizona students may be able to earn this certificate online, since quite a few schools offer distance courses for working healthcare managers.

These programs require a Master's degree and some work experience in health administration. Many graduate healthcare management certificate AZ programs are only one or two semesters long, making it convenient to advance your education while still maintaining a busy work schedule.

Arizona Careers with Healthcare Administration

Another area of growth in Arizona is medical records. Most healthcare facilities have moved to a paperless billing and medical records system, increasing demand for specialists who can ensure that patient information is kept safe from hackers and unauthorized users.

Statewide, medical records technicians earn an average of $41,630 per year (BLS, 2016). O*Net expects job openings to jump 22% by 2024 (2016).

Getting established in healthcare management requires education, hands-on training, and a strong professional network. Even if you have worked in healthcare as a care provider before, it's important to learn from those with experience in management and administration.

Becoming active in local healthcare management groups can give you insight into local trends and legislation. Major groups in Arizona include the Arizona Hospital & Healthcare Association and the Arizona Health Care Association.
