Health Services management is the administrative machinery for planning, delivery and monitoring health care provided by health professionals and their support staff. This may range from running a small primary care centre to organizing a large hospital or being responsible for running the health needs of a region or a nation. Managers should manage in such a manner that would bring about more productive and satisfied workers. Work must be interesting and stimulating after all regular pays and efficient work condition does not always do the trick.
HSM 502 is an introductory course that allows health service managers who are administrators with special training and skills in managing health care. Sometimes they are doctors, nurses or other health professionals requiring the need to be professionally trained.
