Masters in Healthcare Degrees in Montana

In Montana, health care is the second-largest private employer, employing 1 in 6 people in the private sector, according to the Montana Department of Labor and Industry. In fact, the health care industry played a major role in keeping the Montana economy afloat during the recession that struck in 2007, providing secure jobs and even employment for those who were out of work. Montana will continue to need strong leadership in its hospitals, ambulatory care centers, and nursing homes, and opportunities should be available for those with a Montana Masters in Healthcare to advance to positions in management and clinical leadership in these different health care settings.

In 2011, 830 people were employed as medical and health services managers in Montana and reported an average annual salary of $72,840, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Montana was also home to 25,240 health care practitioners and related technical occupations such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists, pharmacy techs, medical records technicians, and more, the BLS noted. Some people get started in the health care industry as clinicians and clinical techs before continuing their education and moving into management or clinical director positions.
