Health Care Management

Health Care Management

All of my classes have been very beneficial towards my current job. The classes were thought provoking and they apply to what I do on a daily basis. My professors are working in the health care management field and they can speak to what we are living on a daily basis. I can apply what I learned in class the very next day at work.
