Masters in Healthcare in Oregon

The health care industry has been a solid rock for Oregon’s economy, and has even been dubbed a “recession-resistant” industry because it continued to add good-paying jobs even during the Great Recession, according to the Oregon Employment Department (OED). In fact, health care industry employment in Oregon grew 36% between 2000 and 2011, the OED noted. With this growth comes the ongoing need for health care managers and practitioners with advanced education who can provide leadership in Oregon’s hospitals, health systems, large group medical practices, nursing homes, and more. An Oregon Masters in Healthcare could be the crucial first step that will prepare you for such leadership positions. One example of an occupation where a master’s degree would be beneficial is medical and health services management. In 2011, Oregon was home to 2,980 such managers, who reported an average annual salary of $102,220, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
