Kettering College to offer new healthcare management major

Kettering College will begin offering a new healthcare management major for students who are interested in pursuing a career in business in the healthcare industry.

The three-year, full-time course of study is equivalent to a four-year degree. Classes will begin in August 2016, the college said.

“This major will prepare students to work on the business side of health care in a management role ,” said Paula Reams, chair of the health sciences department at Kettering College, in a release. “The major also offers a pre-occupational therapy track for students who are interested in going on to a graduate-level occupational therapy program, such as Kettering College’s occupational therapy doctoral program.”

About half of the courses in the program are offered on the Kettering College campus, the other half online, according to the college.
