Clinician-Administrator Transition Post-baccalaureate Certificate

Why Earn a Clinician- Administrator Transition Certificate?

If you’re a licensed or certified health care professional interested in a career in administration or management, Towson’s Clinician-Administrator Transition Certificate (CAT) will give you the skills you need to make a smooth and successful transition from a clinical to an administrative role. The CAT program emphasizes leadership and health care management.

Build Your Skills

Through focused course work and interaction with faculty and students, you will gain the knowledge and skills essential to applying administrative theory to the health care setting. Depending on your interests and career goals, you can draw on your professional experience to complete the capstone project for your current professional setting or for future employment opportunities.

Convenient Course Work

Many of our courses are offered in a fully online format to suit the lives of working professionals with busy schedules. Others are taught in a hybrid format, meaning 50% or more of the class sessions occur online and the remainder take place in the classroom.

The program requires 15 units of course work:

  • Transitions: Health Professionals in a Changing Environment (3)
  • Managing Health Care Professionals (3)
  • Administration of Health Care Organizations (3)
  • Health Care Financial Management (3)
  • Planning and Marketing Health in Business and Industry (3)

Course work from the CAT program is transferable to other master’s programs at Towson, including nursing, health science and occupational therapy.

Prepare for Your Career

Combined with clinical experience, the CAT certificate will give you an edge in your field. With a faculty of experienced and highly trained professionals, you will learn the latest developments in the theory and practice of managing health care settings, supervising staff, and developing health programs and policy. Graduates frequently find policy and leadership positions in hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, health agencies, outpatient centers and other health care settings, or are promoted within their existing settings.
