The need for programs in health care administration is at an all-time high. The health care industry in Canada is growing rapidly and many positions have opened up for professionals to administer, lead and manage health care systems across hospitals and clinics.
That’s why ILAC International College has created a Health Care Administration Diploma program, as part of the new School of Health Care. Students accepted into the program will develop the professional knowledge and skills needed to work in the field of health care administration in Canada.
Health Care administration can be described as ‘making both daily and long-term decisions that reflect the healthcare system’s business strategies’. Positions include policy making, human resources and department management to ensure that patients receive the best possible care.
It’s not hard to find reasons why health care administration is one of the most sought after and growing programs in Canada and the world. Here are some of the top reasons why ILAC’s School of Health is the next best step to a career in the industry:
Get your foot in the door
If you want a job in the Canadian health care system, the ILAC diploma program is a great way to start. Doctors and health care facilities are becoming more reliant on digital recording systems and knowing how to navigate the tools and technology used in the field is essential.
Advance your career
If you are already working in health care in your home country, the ILAC Health Care Administration Diploma is an excellent way to upgrade your skills and gain entry-level experience in Canada.
The health care administration field is expected to expand by more than 22% by the year 2020, with more than 30,000 jobs added during this time period. In addition to the fast growth, candidates can expect to enter the field with a salary of approximately $65,000 for the first year, rising steadily to about $140,000 after 20 years in the field.
Variety of available positions and employers
Unlike many other careers, jobs in health care administration are diverse and include a broad range of settings. Health care administrators can find jobs in a variety of locations, including hospitals, doctor’s offices, pharmaceutical companies, public health institutions, health insurance companies, long-term care facilities and more.
“Rewarding” is a word that often comes to mind when students choose to pursue a career in health care. In addition to the satisfaction of helping others, working in health care administration can give you the chance to treat illnesses, contribute to important medical research and most of all, participate in making a positive impact on the future of health care.
