Health Care Organizations Individual Project

Deliverable Length:  4-5 pages

Part 1

This week, you will begin by conducting research on two (2) health   care administration positions you are interested in and answer the   following questions using Careeronestop.org. Careeronestop.org is a  site  created by the U.S. Department of Labor that will allow you to dig   deeper into a variety of health care positions. For more information   about searching for positions, view the tutorial below.

  • Give a description of the job and typical job duties.
  • What type of health care setting would this person work in (e.g., hospital, retirement home, insurance company)?
  • What skills are needed to be successful in this position?
  • What qualities are needed to succeed in this position?
  • What certifications and education are needed for this position?
  • What technology knowledge is needed for this position?
  • How many years’ experience is required for this position?
  • What is the typical salary for this position?

Part 2

To answer the questions below, you will need to first review three   (3) advertised job descriptions you most likely want based on your   research—using a job board, such as this one—for   a position that you could realistically get after you graduate with   your current level of experience, skills, and education. These jobs do   not have to be in your geographic area, but make sure the descriptions   are detailed enough to understand the requirements (e.g., provide job   duties and qualifications) and that they match your current level of   experience. Have these job descriptions in front of you as you answer   the questions below. For more information about searching for jobs,  view  the tutorial below.

  • Name the three (3) titles you found on this Web site.
  • What skills do you possess that are needed to be successful in each position, and what skills do you need to develop?
  • How can you develop the skills that you do not currently possess?
  • Do you have the work experience needed for each position? If  not,  what can you do to gain this experience while obtaining your  degree?

Part 3

Lastly, you will choose a health care organization to study over the   course of the term. You may select any health care facility you wish   (e.g., long-term care, hospital, home care, ambulatory surgery,   physician practice, etc.). Once you have chosen your facility, examine   its organizational structure. Identify and discuss the following   characteristics of your organization:

  • What is the mission statement of this organization?
  • What patient population does this organization serve?
  • What interests you about this particular organization?
  • What skills and experience do you feel you can contribute to the success of this organization?

Note: Use APA style to cite at least 2 scholarly sources.
