How can I get a good paying job in healthcare administration??

I will soon have my masters in healthcare administration and I currently work for a hospital system as a patient service coordinator. I feel extremely undervalued on top of underpaid. I know that I am capable of more. Is there a space for young healthcare professionals to excel?

You need to put in the work to get skills for the type of job you want. Get out of patient service coordinator roles and apply to be an analyst on a strategy or business development team. Lot more rigor to the work and you’ll learn a ton which will equate to better pay. Staying in your same role for long will not solve your issue. The quicker you can pivot the better of you’ll be.

Hi, I got my MHA last year. Healthcare is one of those industries where your experience matters more than your education. Networking is key as well. Reach out to your professors, colleagues and join professional orgs if you haven’t already. Keep working and spice your resume up. More and more people are obtaining an MHA so you really have to set yourself apart from others especially if you want to work in operations. I work in the revenue cycle and was able to work my way up to a senior role fairly quickly.

I think you should aim towards a senior administrative role, like Hospital Administrator or Nursing Home Administrator. Also, consider having your resume reviewed by a professional. www.prsnbranding.com does a great job with resumes.

I would also highly suggest considering an administrative fellowship, you will get put on a broad range of projects that will build your skills and experience in key areas, fellowships usually land you a leadership role afterwards as well

Highly recommend taking a real break.

Which would you chose?
1. ID firm
2. Small regional firm with private clients and low billable, but not very known
3. An in-house management role that you have the ability to move around to a counsel role, if necessary.
Money is essentially the same.
