Suhui Bang (Department of Healthcare Administration) topped the state exam for certified hospital administrators, which is conducted by the Korean College of Hospital Administrators.
Hospital administrators are recognized as professionals that handle the administrative work needed to run hospitals, such as patient affairs, staffing, planning, management, and financing. More than 3,000 applicants aspiring to serve in the field of hospital administration take the test each year. Thirty prospective graduates of Dankook’s Department of Healthcare Administration applied for the 22nd National Hospital Administrator Exam last November and 29 students, including Bang, successfully passed, recording a high success rate of 96.7% compared to the national average of 68.5%.
“Above all, as I graduate from university, I have gained a lot of confidence in passing not only the exams for hospital administrators and health insurance officers but also the national exam for certified health information managers,” said Bang, who shared her dreams of “becoming an outstanding specialist, which would be expected of someone who passed the exam with the highest scores, in order to contribute to the advancement of healthcare administration in Korea.”
Meanwhile, Dankook’s College of Health Sciences has also recorded high success rates in national exams for healthcare specialists, exceeding the national average.
