Careers in health administration continue to grow despite an overall downturn in the economy. This is a field that offers tremendous job opportunities across the spectrum of healthcare delivery and payment organizations. 101 Careers in Healthcare Management is the only comprehensive guide to careers in health administration, ranging from entry-level management positions to the most senior executive opportunities. The guide clearly explains the responsibilities and duties of each of these careers and how they differ from other management jobs. It describes the integral role of healthcare administrators in creating and sustaining the systems that allow healthcare clinicians to do their best work.

The book covers educational requirements, opportunities, traditional and nontraditional career pathways, and helps students assess whether they are temperamentally and intellectually suited to a career in healthcare management. Based on the most current data from the U.S. Department of Labor and professional societies in healthcare management, the guide describes careers in 14 different healthcare and related settings. These include long-term care, physician practices, commercial insurance, consulting firms, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, information technology, and biotechnology. Additionally, the book offers numerous interviews with health administrators, from those in entry-level positions to CEOs, to more vividly portray potential careers.

A Chronicle of Chronic Underemployment

RIGHT BEFORE THE 2008 recession, I was working at an asset-management company in Kansas City. The economy wasn’t looking good, but I wasn’t actually laid off: I had to go to Tulsa and care for my stepfather, who had stage-four lymphoma. It was very challenging to find a job around that time, so since then I’ve been working at contract positions. Working as a temp is hard: You’ve got to start over each time. I’m single, never been married, so I have to support myself. Of course, I want to work, but it’s very hard when you don’t have a cushion. I don’t have a zero bank balance; I’m always overdr
