Health Care Administration focuses on the application of the principle and practices of public administration to the policy and practice of health care and medicine. Health administration is a professional activity associated with public administration because administrators must be able to make intelligent choices about alternative courses of action that their agency might take in reference to the challenges of administering health care related programs in a rapidly changing medical and policy environment. Program graduates work in hospitals, clinics, the Health Care Financing Administration, Texas Department of Health, and private health care consulting companies. The track is structured so that, in addition to the MPA core, all students will take four tract requirements to develop analytic skills and tools. Students also take two electives designed to allow them to develop specialized expertise and leverage the resources available in other university programs.
