Healthcare Administration Career Training Begins at SBI

The Health Care Administration: Long Term Care program at the SBI Campus - an affiliate of Sanford-Brown can help prepare students for entry-level positions in exciting healthcare administration careers. Healthcare managers need to combine caring for people with business leadership because they will be responsible for planning and coordinating healthcare delivery, integrating technological innovations and an increased focus on preventive care. Healthcare administration careers are challenging and unique because patient care is constantly updated with new practices and technologies.

As SBI graduates, students can look for entry-level positions in a variety of medical environments for their healthcare administration careers. For example, a student might start their career working in a hospital or nursing home. For students who pursue higher education, other opportunities become available. For example, with a graduate degree, jobs as health care consultants may become available. Chief Hospital Administrators often begin their careers with undergraduate degrees in healthcare administration.

Recently, physicians have started to gather together, forming group practices. In smaller practices, administrative duties are often assigned to a healthcare administrator.

In larger practices (usually 10 or more physicians), there may be multiple administrators to handle each of the specific areas of their medical business.

The work environment in healthcare administration careers varies depending upon the facility. Some healthcare administrators have private offices, while others share space with fellow staff members. Hospitals and nursing homes operate around the clock, which can mean there is more potential for employment opportunities.

In order for students to be effective in their healthcare administration careers, SBI can help them develop a variety of administrative skills. They can acquire oral and written communication and interpersonal skills. Specialization courses cover elder law, medical coding, medical office procedures, medical terminology, medical billing, and more. SBI training also includes an internship, which can give students the real-world experience they need to get an edge in the job market.

Graduation Rate

A first-time student has no prior postsecondary experience before enrolling at this campus. This means that a student who attended another college, university or other postsecondary school before enrolling at this school is not included in the calculation. The rate also does not include students initially enrolled part-time, taking individual classes (as compared to enrolling in a full program), or only auditing classes. These rates are calculated using the Student Right-to-Know formula in order to comply with U.S. Department of Education requirements. The statistics track all first-time, full-time and certificate or degree-seeking undergraduate students who began school during the date range and have completed within 150% of the normal program length. For example, for a two-year program, the graduation rate would include students who had completed within three years of beginning the program.
