“I really enjoy the Healthcare Management major for the insights it provides into the different aspects of the healthcare system. Within my first year of taking major specific courses, I’ve learned about health policy, health economics, national and foreign healthcare delivery and payment structures, as well as the insurance industry. Both the HCMI program and its faculty supply the building blocks necessary to be a professional in an incredibly important, expanding, and evolving field.”
