Why Study Health Professions Online?

By obtaining a degree in health professions, students are able to more easily find employment in the healthcare industry and ultimately perform their jobs better. Associate and bachelor’s programs in the College of Health Professions focus largely on foundational theories and healthcare concepts. Course topics will consist of medical terminology, healthcare delivery systems, healthcare software applications and more. In addition, students will gain a legal and ethical understanding of healthcare practices.

Graduate programs in the health professions field expand on undergraduate foundations with more advanced curriculum. As part of these programs, students will gain real-world experience in a clinical practice setting under the supervision of healthcare professionals. Students will also develop leadership skills that will help them thrive in a management position.

Due to our country’s aging population, opportunities in healthcare continue to grow. According to the US Department of Commerce, there are more people over the age of 65 than there are under the age of 65 in the United States. And as healthcare technology continues to advance, this trend is only expected to continue over time.

Grantham offers a host of health professions programs at all academic levels. Those interested in the integration of technology and healthcare should consider the health information management program. For those looking for an entry-level health professions position, the Electronic Health Records and Medical Coding and Billing Certificate programs are excellent options.
