Hello, I have a question about classifying healthcare management courses in relation to AMCAS' course classification guide. Are they considered business, health sciences, or behavioral & social sciences? I know healthcare management has the term "management" in it, but I am hesitant to mark it as business since the classes I've taken have either focused on clinical issues in healthcare, the economics of healthcare, or the broader healthcare system in general.

Thank you for your help in advance!

Healthcare is a business just like hospitality or manufacturing. Call it business.

PS: if it isn't BCPM it doesn't really matter what you call it.
