As an open enrollment program, there are no application or admission requirements and students may enter the program at any time. Courses are taught throughout the year at regional centers across Southern California including San Diego, Rancho Cucamonga, Santa Ana and Burbank.
The certificate may also be offered as a custom on-site program in which organizations are able to integrate existing work-related issues and projects into the curriculum. The program is open to healthcare providers, managers and professionals as well as individuals interested in entering healthcare administration, attorneys specializing in healthcare and service providers in allied fields including finance, insurance and marketing.
Members of the Healthcare Administration Advisory Committee come from private and public organizations. Most are active professionals with years of experience in healthcare administration. The role of the Advisory Committee is to help shape the curriculum, lead the development of future offerings, identify trends in the discipline, expand partnership opportunities with organizations and professional associations, identify adjunct faculty and guest speakers to teach in the program, mentor students and expand the University's reach to new audiences.
Following the University's decades-long tradition in professional business education, the Healthcare Administration Certificate program is staffed by practitioner faculty who combine years of professional expertise with the ability to teach and train others. Faculty are continually reviewed by students and administrators to ensure they provide the most up-to-date and relevant information in the field. Faculty generally have a graduate degree in management or a related field and a commitment to continuing education in healthcare administration.
Courses offer full academic credit, and students may be able to apply these units toward an undergraduate or graduate degree at most colleges and universities. All degree programs have unique requirements, so students are encouraged to speak with an academic advisor at their home institution to ensure the applicability of the program to their degree.
