Healthcare systems are complex, dynamic, multilayered and unpredictable. They require constant situational awareness to maintain safety, efficiency, compliance, relevance and fiscal responsibility. Management and leadership need to have the vision to respond to changes and unexpected events. In this course, students encounter and explore the management functions required to lead and administer various types of healthcare systems. Students will engage in activities such as analyzing a healthcare system or organization’s current level of performance or culture to inform ways to lead that organization toward excellence.
