|Description:||The SRU HCAM program will provide you with both the science-based prerequisites necessary to enter the occupational therapy program and an understanding of how the healthcare industry functions. This combination will significantly differentiate you from others with future employers as uniquely prepared for your chosen career path. As an HCAM student at SRU, you'll become skilled in understanding not only the science and anatomical underpinnings required to pursue your degree in occupational therapy, but will also learn how to become a leader in the field. You'll understand the principles behind healthcare leadership, healthcare quality improvement processes, motivation, teamwork processes, healthcare information systems, the healthcare legal and regulatory environment, as well as managed care and healthcare reimbursement. As members of the nation's largest industry, occupational therapists are being asked to take on leadership roles which include a greater grasp of the business of healthcare.
