Health Services Administration Program

The Health Services Administration Program (HADM) at Auburn University is a bachelor of science professional degree program. Its mission is to prepare and equip students with the professional competencies and expertise needed to manage and lead organizations in the complex and dynamic health care environment. 

The health care industry continues to be one of the largest and fastest-growing sectors of the U.S. economy. Health care systems of the future will focus on improving others’ lives through patient-centered care, health care information technology, cutting-edge research, improved organization, and strong management. The HADM program prepares tomorrow's health care leaders to guide these systems and shape health care policy in an ever-increasingly complex and dynamic environment.

Auburn's HADM program is the oldest undergraduate healthcare administration program in the state of Alabama and was the first in the state to receive accreditation from the Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA).  Housed in the College of Liberal Arts, the HADM program provides students with a high-quality, innovative educational experience in an intimate learning environment. 

Established in 1971, it has more than 1,100 alumni across the United States and is recognized as one of the leading undergraduate healthcare administration programs in the U.S. Students graduating from the Auburn University HADM program are highly regarded by employers and graduate programs in health administration, and the program has a consistently high placement rate for new graduates into jobs and/or graduate school within 90 days to 1 year of graduation.
