As you complete your studies as a master’s-prepared health care administrator, what role do you envision for yourself? As you know by now, there are many roles and areas of specialty from which to choose. Since you have almost completed your master’s degree, imagine you have been asked by your dean to make a presentation to a group of undergraduate students considering becoming health care administrators. Your goal is to sell a health care administrator career to this group of undergraduate students by providing them an overview of health care administration and then personalizing it to how you envision health care will succeed in the next decade.
Write a 1–2 page executive summary of your presentation, plus a 3–5 page paper where you will synthesize the functions of the master’s-prepared health care administrator, including role, responsibilities, and priorities. You will also need to touch on all major components of a health care administrator, such as, but not limited to human resources, finance, information technology, regulatory topics, and leadership.
Your executive summary and paper must include all of the elements listed below, so be sure to address each point. You may also want to review the performance-level descriptions for each criterion in the scoring guide to see how your work will be assessed:
Provide executive summary of a health care administrator’s job responsibilities.
Outline at least six specific functions of a health care administrator.
Describe successful leadership traits for the six identified health care administrator functions.

On the executive summary, provide a cover page with your name, the course number and course title, your professor’s name, the university’s name, and the date.
Include a 1–2 page executive summary of your presentation, after the cover page and before the assignment.
