This program is designed to prepare the individual who is interested in entering or advancing in the area of medical case management. The student will learn the components of case management including assessing, planning, implementing, coordinating, monitoring, and evaluating the care of a client across the continuum of care. The program is open to health and human services professionals including Nurses and Medical Assistants, as well as those with no health-related background.
Potential employment for medical case managers may include working with insurance providers, third party administrators, integrated health care systems, physicians’ practices, rehabilitation agencies, legal firms, human services organizations or attorneys practicing in worker compensation and personal injury, government agencies, self insured organizations or as an independent consultant.
Credits for previous Allied Health course work or an associate’s degree with an Allied Health credential (i.e., Registered Nurse, Medical Assistant, Respiratory Therapy) that are not the exact equivalent of Davenport University courses may be awarded following consultation with the Associate Dean of the College of Health Professions. This curriculum can prepare students for entry into the Davenport University’s MBA program.
To be prepared for success on the national certification exam and entry into the Medical Case Management profession, it is strongly recommended that students meet the most current catalog year requirements.
