Health Care Administration Program

In keeping with the needs of the expected job positions, education is geared to both business and health science-related skills. All courses in this 30 hour program are 3 credit hours and many are offered at SUNY MetroCenter in downtown Rochester either on Saturdays or evenings.

Please note: HLS 301 and HLS 306 are not required for this program as they are for other programs in Health Science in order to focus more attention on administrative issues and keep within the 30 hour framework. Students are reminded that they need to complete a contemporary issues course as part of the College General Education requirement, and HLS 306 is recommended for this purpose.
