    Hey there,
    I was just wondering if anyone can give me some general information on being a healthcare administrator and how to get there. To get the discussion started....
    1. What is/was your major for your undergrad?
    2. Which major would you recommend for aspiring admins, or do you see in other admins?
    3. Do you enjoy being a hospital admin? What is a 'typical' day like?
    4. There all a lot of areas you can be an admin in, what's your favorite or preferred?
    5. Any other advice?
    6. Anything else you would like to say!

    Thanks!

    Are you referring to a physician healthcare administrator? Or a non-physician administrator?

    Let me refer you to two organizations that will answer both questions:

    For physicians: American College of Physician Executives (ACPE)
    For non-physicians: American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE)

    You can learn a lot more from each of those orgs.
