Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

The graduate certificate in Long Term Care is designed for healthcare or general business professionals. In the next 25 years, the US population is expected to include 82 million Americans over the age of 65, the vast majority of whom will require some type of Long-Term Care as they age. The need for skilled, thoughtful and strategic healthcare administrators specific to long term care is greater than ever before. The graduate certificate in Long Term Care combines the theoretical aspects of leadership with a focus on the practical components of day-to-day management in the specialty of long-term care. Professionals gain exposure to key concepts including ethical leadership and strategic management, environmental and regulatory policies that impact access and availability of long-term services and supports for adults with disabilities and disabled older adults, in addition to population health management. Students also have the opportunity to self-select predetermined elective courses that reflect each student’s individual interests and career goals but serve as a compliment to the credential and potential future master’s program pathway opportunities.
