The concept for this course is to give students the opportunity to delve into some of the most vexing aspects of leadership. The objective of the course is to help students understand the importance of critical thinking, communication skills, and decision-making skills required of successful leaders in healthcare. Real-life management situations and leadership development skills shared by resident faculty will facilitate learning around prominent healthcare management topics. The course begins with problem solving and ends with healthcare reform and future trends. A set of sessions on transformational leadership: principles and practice, gives students a glimpse at some leadership challenges they may face in their careers. Positioned in the last year of the MHA program the course gives students an opportunity to start to transition from student to professional. This semester uses cases based on actual problems and issues and gives students the chance to explore possible solutions while still in the “safety” of the classroom. The goals of this course is to both add to students’ fund of knowledge about healthcare administration and to engage students in critical thinking about issues facing healthcare administrators. Students should be in the spring semester of their last year of the MHA program.
