"I want students to see me as a mentor who is sensitive to the context (classroom or online) where they learn, the researcher who is abreast of current research and most of all, to see a person who is simply passionate about what she is doing." - Dr. Jessica Dolecheck, Associate Professor and Coordinator of the School of Health Professions, College of Health & Pharmaceutical Sciences.
Bachelor of Science in Health Studies - Healthcare Marketing/Management (BS)
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of medical and health services managers and personnel is projected to grow 23% from 2012 to 2022, this rate is much faster than the average for all other occupations. As the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active later in life, the healthcare industry as a whole will see an increase in the demand for medical services. The Health Studies Marketing/Management program focuses on a very personal, student-centered approach, while encouraging personal and professional growth and ownership of their academic progression. We strive to be very responsive to our students and want to make sure they are successful in our program. We are constantly updating our Health Studies courses to reflect the most current, up-to-date information out there.
