In this Finances and Accounting course, a module in the Healthcare Management Certificate series, for new managers in the healthcare arena, you will explore the financial issues that make healthcare organizations unique. 


Format: Online

Hours: 15 / 1.5 CEUs

When: Start anytime

Cost: $389

You will develop a basic understanding of accounting principles, terms, and methods used in financial accounting for healthcare organizations, including preparing and reading budgets. The complexity of finances in the healthcare system is due, in part, to the many and varied entities that regulate and channel the flow of monies into and out of the system. This tangled network will be addressed and simplified in ways that make sense to non-accountants.

Each course is supported by an experienced, highly qualified coach mentor who will check on your progress every 72 hours and provide supportive feedback on your lessons by email.
