Description


Career Opportunities in Healthcare Management is a concise, reader-friendly, introductory healthcare management book that covers a wide variety of career opportunities in a broad range of direct healthcare settings--such as hospitals, physician practices, nursing homes, and clinics--and non-direct health care settings, such as associations, managed care and health insurance companies, consulting firms, and medical supplier firms. Filled with first person accounts from health care managers working in the field, these profiles will engage the reader’s imagination, inform them of key issues associated with these important roles, as well as what makes these health care managers happy and eager to go to work in the morning. Beginning with an individualized 'Health Care Management Talent Quotient Quiz' and ending with a guide to finding a job in healthcare management, this hands on student-friendly and teacher-friendly text is the perfect resource for students of healthcare management, nursing, allied health, business administration, pharmacy, occupational therapy, public administration, and public health. Features: • The experienced authors use an active voice to grab the reader’s attention. • An individualized Health Care Management Talent Quotient Quiz to assess each student’s baseline aptitude and identify skills gaps that need to be addressed. • Over forty lively, first person profiles of health care managers working in the field covering everything from educational background and how they first became aware of health care management, through advice to future health care managers. • Detailed appendices that include: resources for learning more about health care management; sample programs of study; job hunting advice; frequently used terms in advertisements, sample position descriptions, do’s and don’ts of interviewing, and a sample cover letter and resume.
