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 students need for success in any setting
We understand that not all of your students will go on to work in senior-level positions in hospitals. 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—not just from hospitals, but from clinics, medical offices, long-term care facilities, nursing facilities, and more!
