Choose Your Area of Interest

Healthcare administrations play a role in transforming quality of care within medical organizations. As globalization becomes the standard for all industries, healthcare administrators must be able to effectively manage the challenges of global health inequities and social determinants of care.

You can select a range of elective courses that focus on global health and health disparities, community and behavioral health, nutrition, and complementary alternative medicine. 

You may also decide to select electives in long-term care or elder care. Aging adults are the fastest growing patient population, with elder care making up a significant portion of the US healthcare system. 


Earn a Credential 

If you're interested in earning credentials in practice management, you can select a variety of courses that cover the domains required to qualify for the following post-graduate credentialing exams: 

  • Certified Physician Practice Manager (CPPM) through AAPC
  • Certified Medical Practice Executive (CMPE) through MGMA
  • Certified Medical Manager (CMM) through PAHCOM

Practice managers must be able to effectively communicate with physicians, health insurance representatives, and other healthcare professionals. You can strengthen your analytical, decision-making, and problem-solving skills to find creative solutions to solve various administrative issues that can arise in a healthcare practice through a variety of practice management focused electives.  

“Healthcare is evolving. The U.S. patient population is aging, diversifying, and growing. Labouré’s program in healthcare administration prepares graduates to manage the healthcare teams and organizations that will care for this population.”
