Education and Research
These professionals work to leverage research and education in hospitals. Research and education professionals promote health care improvement strategies through scientific research and quality educational initiatives.
Although hospitals exist to care for sick and injured people, their financial operations are complex and require professionals to monitor and track the hospital’s finances.
Human resource professionals in hospitals may work in various positions such as employment and placement, compensation and benefits, training and development, or employee relations.
Office Support and Operations
Administration is the business side of health care. If you work in a hospital, office support and administrative positions play an important role in ensuring employees, like nurses, doctors and lab technicians, have the resources and equipment to provide excellent care for patients. Professionals in hospital administration monitor the hospital’s finances and risks to ensure that the hospital and its employees comply with necessary state and federal regulations.
