About this course

Healthcare administration is the connection between healthcare and business. Graduates may work in hospitals, clinics, business offices, academic institutions, health insurance companies, and other environments.

The healthcare industry is the most complex filed as it deals with people’s life, health services, and it is directly related to the social developmental index of a country and the community. Every country faces different challenges as their social, cultural, religious and political situations but in general rising costs, rapidly changing technology, complex ethical issues, the uninsured, and consumer demands for quality combine to offer a host of legal, political, economic, and administrative challenges. Various global challenges ranging from:

• Which should be the priority Primary, Secondary or Tertiary care?
• How can we deliver health care for the elderly and the people of limited income on equity basis?
• Does the health care system provide the best quality of care?

Our societies need solutions; we need professionals with administrative and technical skills and competencies to balance the competing goals of equity, ethics, cost, access, and quality. BMC’s Healthcare Administration Department was a pioneer in undergraduate education in health administration, offering one of the first programs in the private sector of KSA.
