Healthcare Administration Schools in Georgia

Georgia offers a wide range of experiences in terms of living conditions for students. At one end of the spectrum, you can experience the thrill of big city living in Atlanta. Visit the World of Coke, check out the animals at the Atlanta Aquarium, and hike up Stone Mountain.

At the other end of the spectrum you have the quintessential “Southern charm” of the state that can be seen and experienced in myriad rural towns. The Blue Ridge Mountains offer a beautiful setting to escape to when you’re in need of a study break.

In terms of employment opportunities for prospective healthcare administrators, Georgia is a state that offers fairly strong employment options. As you can imagine, living near cities like Atlanta will provide you more options due to the higher density of hospitals, not to mention the presence of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In terms of earnings potential, a health manager in the state of Georgia can expect to make a median salary of $89,560. You’ll probably notice that this is a bit lower than in many of the other states. However, you should also keep in mind that the cost of living in Georgia is lower than in most other states.
