Joseph spent several years working as a caregiver and wanted to transition into an administrative or management role. He first earned an associate degree from Ivy Tech and then transferred to IUPUI.
“The Bachelor of Science in Health Services Management (BSHSM) program was a solid fit in terms of credit transfer, as well as my academic and professional goals.”
Joseph also met his academic advisor, one or two semesters before joining IUPUI. “She reviewed all my Ivy Tech credits and gave me a very realistic action plan.”
Through the BSHSM program, Joseph said he gained a good understanding of benefits and benefits structure, finance and accounting knowledge, root cause analyses, report writing, health IT, and HIPPA guidelines. All of which he uses in his career today.
