Question by Joshua: What kind of job can I get right out of college with a degree in Health Services Administration?
I am finishing up my degree in Health Science with a concentration in Health Services Administration. Ideally, I want to get my Masters in Business Administration or go to Law school, but I would like to work a few years to build up some work experience, which looks good for MBA programs. With a Bachelors in Health Service Administration, I know you can work as a Medical Service Manager, which pays well ($ 80,000-$ 96,000), but I doubt I would land a job like that right out of college with no experience. What kind of jobs are available for Health Services Administration degrees with no work experience?

    You would likely get a chance to have a career on that field if you earn masters in health administration
    degree today.

    Did your program require an internship or did you complete an internship of some kind through your program? What type of career advice does your program provide to students and do they assist with helping students find jobs? Do you have experience with computers, data, and medical terminology? Since health science is a broad overview……..there could be different types of positions you may check into, and I highly recommend checking with your school program to see what type of services they can provide in helping students figure out what jobs they may qualify for. I know what they say about assumptions, but my assumption is that your program should have some type of connection with employers…..and be able to help students figure out what types of jobs they may apply for or qualify for?

    When I googled health sciences degrees, this is what a school indicated about the health science degree itself “non-discipline specific, generic degree”. http://www.astate.edu/college/conhp/degrees/details.dot?mid=0321fd15-e742-4ec7-9ec4-2787c70eee9b

    The interesting thing is in checking what the colleges are saying one can “do” with this degree………some of those things require specialized degrees (i.e. nursing, radiology, dental hygienist, etc). You can’t do any of those things with just a degree in health sciences.

    Another school, says it is a degree to use as an undergraduate program into applying for occupational, speech, physical therapy, etc. Almost like it really isn’t a degree that stands alone, or wasn’t a degree that was “created” as a stand alone health related degree.

    “With the contemporary emphasis on inter-professional healthcare teams and systems, our interdisciplinary curriculum provides a solid foundation for students wishing to pursue professional training in medicine, or rehabilitation sciences (such as, speech pathology, physical therapy, or occupational therapy). It also provides an excellent background for students interested in careers or master’s-level education in areas of health promotion, health policy, gerontology, bioethics, or health measurement” http://www.uwo.ca/fhs/health_studies/index.html

    The key words I see for this degree is “overview” “interdisciplinary” “general” , etc.

    Once you earn the degree the job search really depends on multiple factors: (1) the network of alumni or business contacts of your department, (2) local job opportunities, (3) job search strategy, (4) flexibility in relocation, (5) state of the job market for new college graduates in the area, and (6) interpersonal skills.

    I have a master’s of public health, which is somewhat similar to health services administration. Many of the MPH graduates worked for the local state health department after finishing the degree. Others went to federal agencies like the CDC in Atlanta or consulting jobs in the Metro DC area. With your degree I see opportunities throughout onclaves of the country. I would recommend the following metro areas for new college graduates.
    * Austin, TX
    * Atlanta, GA
    * Boston, MA
    * DC
    * Denver, CO
    * Dallas, TX
    * Houston, TX

    I worked in Texas last year with projects in Medicaid and Electronic Health Records. I was a business analyst. You can probably work as a business analyst for an EHR company and gather requirements. Some companies may be willing to train you. Or you could go into government, but they don’t normally pay as much.

    For further education, I would recommend an accounting degree with a focus on medical billing and claims processing. Another good option is the master’s of medical informatics for healthcare software. An MBA with a focus on healthcare industry can also be viable, but the accounting is probably stronger. Law is the least likely to lead to a good job unless you go to the top 14 like Yale or Stanford, etc.

    Healthcare is strong. I am a biomedical engineer with an MPH. I also have an MS in biomedical engineering. I have had many job offers despite the recession. You’re off to a good start in this diverse field of healthcare. The Baby Boomers are aging, and healthcare reform requires highly trained graduates. Best wishes.
