Gateway to Healthcare Management textbook series

Providing an entry into the world of healthcare management

Why did we develop the Gateway textbook series? Because you asked for it!

You told us how difficult it is to find appropriate books for introductory healthcare management courses. The available textbooks assume too much prior knowledge. Your students struggle with unfamiliar terms. Students just entering the discipline need examples and anecdotes to bring concepts to life. They require learning aids and experiential exercises to boost their comprehension. You talked, and we listened. We created the Gateway to Healthcare Management series specifically for students new to healthcare management.

The essentials textbooks students need for success

Gateway books provide the fundamental knowledge and skills that will prepare students to manage effectively at the departmental level and beyond. Students will learn through realistic examples—including hospitals, but from clinics, medical offices, long-term care facilities, nursing facilities, and more!

Just the right blend of theory and application

Gateway books are written and designed to engage students new to healthcare management. Geared toward today’s active learner, each book’s pages are peppered with features that will keep students reading, reflecting, and understanding.

Gateway books feature:

  • Sidebars, fact boxes, and real-world examples to bring concepts to life
  • Chapter learning goals and summaries, in-margin glossaries, and exercises/review questions for student study
  • An appealing writing style with numerous subheads for easy reading
