PUBH 7533: Leading with Impact in Healthcare

1 Credit

This course is offered in the final term of the Executive MHA degree and is designed to enhance students' abilities to be effective leaders in health care organizations. The course will discuss the core theory and concepts of leadership, the principles of managed and adaptive change methods, and leadership impact on teams, culture and community. Concepts from previous courses will be reexamined, specifically in reference to their leadership implications (management, ethics, making changes in healthcare, quality and patient safety, etc.) In addition, it is offered alongside the Capstone course so that leadership perspectives can and will be incorporated into their final Capstone deliverable. Students will conduct 360 feedback exercises to understand their strengths and areas for improvement as a leader and use the results of that assessment to develop a plan for their personal leadership career development. We will explore leadership practices that will positively affect team outcomes, organization culture, and community relations. Reading and online resource requirements include books, articles, video, and other talks focused on multiple facets of leadership, change, and culture. Small group and class discussions focus on applying concepts from the readings/online resources to leadership in a variety of health care and public health settings. Students will be provided assignments where they will apply learnings and concepts to current leadership challenges they are experiencing. Discussion boards will be utilized to post questions, experiences, and learnings that have occurred through experimentation and theory testing. These learnings may be cited in the final Capstone deliverable.
