Health care is a rapidly growing and changing field today, not only from the perspective of the patients, medical professionals, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, but also from the accounting and finance professionals who gather and report this information. This major is for the future accountant who would like to work primarily in the area of hospital finance and accounting. The program is concentrated on the essential accounting courses that every accountant needs for their profession, but also adds medical terminology, the basics of health care delivery systems, the complex world of reimbursements and insurance, and the legal aspects of the medical profession.

The goal is that graduates with this major will have the training to be employable in a hospital or health care facility accounting and/or finance department. In addition, the accounting and finance department at Stark State College has numerous articulation agreements with two and four-year institutions. This will enable the graduate to transfer credits to pursue a baccalaureate degree in accounting, finance, or management. With additional coursework at Stark State or as part of their baccalaureate program, the graduate would also be eligible to pursue professional certifications, such as the CPA or CMA.
