Overview

At its core, healthcare is about taking care of people, from interacting directly with patients to working behind the scenes to improve the processes and policies that contribute to the overall patient experience. New technologies, breakthrough treatments and government regulations have all dramatically changed the way we care for people.

It’s a fact: The population of older Americans is growing. A recent report from the Population Reference Bureau says that the number of U.S. adults age 65+ will double to more than 98 million by 2060. What does that mean for you? Plenty -- if you’re looking for a career in the explosive-growth industry of healthcare. Healthcare jobs are increasing far faster than the national average, and the need for healthcare management professions is just as great.

Throughout your Healthcare Management program courses at Franklin University, you’ll acquire up-to-date knowledge that’s applicable now (and later) to an evolving industry. Our curriculum incorporates a thorough understanding of healthcare reform initiatives, including changes in healthcare delivery systems, future of healthcare financing, and legislative healthcare policy proposals.
