A certificate is awarded to individuals completing a course of study that does not lead to a diploma. It may be issued for the completion of a single course or an entire program. Certificates may be offered at different levels of expertise as well.

What is a certificate in healthcare studies? Generally, it is a program that covers a wide variety of healthcare topics. Most courses focus on the administrative side of healthcare. Students may be introduced to medical terminologies, learn about policies and regulations, and gain an understanding of financial and ethical considerations specific to the healthcare industry. Some certificates are offered as stand-alone programs, or the credits earned can be applied to an associate or bachelor’s degree. Courses may include healthcare informatics, healthcare delivery systems, and healthcare administration and management.

Those who complete courses in healthcare studies and earn a certificate often discover they have developed many transferable skills that are beneficial in pursuing a variety of careers as well as for certain aspects of personal life. Some skills acquired may include basic time management, communication and computer skills.

Certificates in healthcare studies are awarded at many different universities. Each school may have varied program requirements. Because of this, there is no standard tuition rate. Prospective students should contact the institution presenting the certificate for further information on rates and fees.

Most certificate programs prepare students for entry-level positions.

Individuals may find opportunities working for the government, non-profits and private healthcare systems. Certificates are also usually helpful in advancing one’s career for persons already employed within the field. A certification in healthcare studies may prepare graduates for positions as managers or administrators.

For students seeking a more flexible schedule, online certification programs may be available in whole or in part. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
