About

By developing business administration, organizational, analytical and managerial skills, graduates of Athabasca University’s Health Administration degree program are able to help meet the increasing demands placed on provincial and national health systems.

Health administrators work in partnership with health teams and governments to improve health, mitigate public health concerns, and manage human, financial and informational resources, whilst promoting health equity and equal access to basic health services.
