Where Can You Work with a Master's in Healthcare Administration?

By Peter Vogt | Monster Career Coach

Experience Required

No matter which career path you end up pursuing, you’ll need some healthcare-related experience if you want to be competitive in your job search and gain access to the full range of opportunities.

“People sometimes expect to land a management role right out of school with no healthcare experience,” Turner says. “It never happens. Healthcare experience is essential.”

How to get it? If you eventually want to pursue a high-level job in a clinical area, Turner says, “clinical tech, certified nursing assistant and phlebotomist roles are terrific.” If you aspire to a nonclinical leadership position, on the other hand, start by working in an administrative assistant role in the business office or as a receptionist or admissions clerk, Turner advises.
