Health Administration is one of 13 core disciplines in a LEND program.
A Health Administrator utilizes the theories and practices needed for planning, organizing, communicating, and managing human and fiscal resources to achieve positive outcomes related to health in community-based and institutional settings. Effective health administration requires an understanding of the culture and norms of both providers and users, and a responsiveness to the dynamic environment of health care delivery, including political, social and economic influences.
