The college received final approval for the BAS in Clinical Operations Management from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) on June 26. The program is now accepting students for the Fall 2023 semester.

The BAS in Clinical Operations Management will prepare students for advancement within healthcare organizations by offering leadership and managerial topics including business principles, talent management, project management, data analysis, and risk management. All courses are conducted online and may be taken on a part-time or full-time basis.
