On behalf of our faculty, staff and on-campus students, I would like to welcome you to the School of Allied Health. The Health Care Management (HCM) program is offered at the Carbondale campus as well as at off-campus locations throughout the United States and online. Baccalaureate graduates of the Health Care Management program are prepared for entry level management and administrative positions in a myriad of health care and health care related jobs. Beginning job opportunities and career choices include working with government agencies, hospitals, outpatient facilities, insurance companies, ambulatory surgery centers, long-term care facilities, home health care, hospice services, physician practice management, and other health care organizations.

The faculty and staff of the SIU Extended Campus Academic Programs are dedicated to meeting the educational needs of the health care professional. We hope that you enjoy your time as a Saluki and find your SIU experience challenging and rewarding.         

Dr. Kevin Scott Collins, Director
School of Allied Health
