Healthcare Administration

A research guide for topics in health sciences and healthcare administration


Health Sciences & Healthcare Administration

Welcome to the Research Guide for Health Sciences & Healthcare Administration. In this guide, you’ll find resources to support your research, and help you complete assignments. 

Health care administrators must be excellent managers; they must be leaders who can oversee entire departments, facilities, and/or networks. Often, the duties of an administrator will include fluent knowledge of and ability to apply principles of accounting, budgeting, economics, finance, human resources, marketing, organization, policy analysis, strategic planning, technology, and more. Administrators must anticipate and plan for change and implement a long-term vision for the workplace. They must be knowledgeable in organizational, informational, and systemic productive workflows.

Your research needs in healthcare administration may span a variety of topics – from evidence-based practice, to business and leadership, to legal and ethical issues. In addition to a robust ebook collection, the CityU Library subscribes to specialized databases containing articles, videos, and other content to help you with your assignments.
