New programs designed to prepare students to serve as leaders in the health care sector will be developed at Rutgers University–Camden with the support of a $25,000 planning grant provided by the Rowan University/Rutgers–Camden Board of Governors.

The announcement was made at a regularly scheduled public meeting of the joint board in Camden today.

The grant will allow Rutgers University–Camden to develop health care administration programs that will provide career opportunities for its MBA, law, and undergraduate students. Such modules could be available to students enrolled in the joint MBA/JD program delivered by the Rutgers School of Business–Camden and Rutgers Law School or as a certificate program for undergraduate students seeking the credentials necessary to successfully navigate the complexities of the health care sector.

“Rutgers University–Camden is home to many world-class academic programs that power the region’s health care providers, including our School of Nursing, our undergraduate health sciences major, our computational and integrative biology programs, and much more,” explains Rutgers University–Camden Provost Michael Palis. “In addition to our strengths in the health sciences, Rutgers–Camden soon will be providing enhanced learning opportunities for the effective administration of health care.”

“South Jersey’s success as a magnet for health care delivery relies upon innovators in administration as much as it does upon doctors, nurses, therapists, and everyone who delivers direct patient care,” says Jack Collins, chair of the Rowan University/Rutgers–Camden Board of Governors.

Adds Dudley Rivers, chair of the Rutgers University–Camden Board of Directors and a member of the RURCBOG: “The growth of this Rutgers–Camden program will help to provide our region with skilled administrators who will be better prepared to make certain that our quality of health care continues to thrive.”
