HMP645: Seminar in Leadership for Changing American Healthcare
3 Credit Hour(s)
Not offered 2018-2019
Prerequisites: completion of first year requirements for HMP MPH or MHSA, or permission of instructor
Description: This course will use four current, important topics on the national agenda to develop students' insights into how such topics evolve and are guided by professional managers and policy makers. Student teams will be formed around profession interests (e.g. provider management, insurance, government agencies). Each team will prepare two papers on each topic:
(1) a background based on prior coursework and surveys of library and web resources, outlining the key issues, political positions of major stakeholders, technical issues, and actions proposed by others
(2) a plan of action for a specific agency or organization, with agenda, timeline, types of participation, goals, and achievement issues.
These papers will be submitted in writing for grading, and presented to classmates for discussion.
A national leader concerned with the issue will join the seminar for the third session on each topic.
