Innovative Healthcare Leadership Certificate Course Descriptions

Innovative Healthcare Leadership and Design Thinking

In this hands-on course, you will learn and apply the design thinking process to the healthcare industry while developing an understanding of the psychological principles that underlie innovative thinking, problem-solving, and human behavior. We will explore organizational power dynamics and develop a meaningful approach to overcoming daily challenges. Along with your Pod mates, you will explore enhanced interpersonal communication techniques and learn to execute these techniques within your organization for immediate impact on your work environment. In this course, you will learn about and practice design thinking skills through a variety of teaching and learning methods including experiential exercises, case studies and direct project application. This course will require you to spend a great deal of time out in the field as part of your actual coursework.

Innovative Practice Management

In this dynamic course, you will work with your colleagues and a variety of experts to refine your Healthcare Leadership Project (HLP), explore challenges in healthcare policy, HR and organizational governance in healthcare, patient-centered care, and incorporating Advanced Practice Clinicians (APC) into medical practices. You will learn alongside your classmates and a variety of guest lecturers as we examine the complex nature of running a modern healthcare practice. You will build your knowledge in several key areas that leaders in healthcare need to understand in order to position their organizations for success. Additionally, you will review, finalize, and submit your Healthcare Leadership Project.

The Business of Healthcare

This course is an exploration of the basic financial management concepts and nuances of financial management in the health care industry. Managers need to have a solid working knowledge of the financial performance of their business. Not only as an exercise about how to deploy scarce resources, but it needs to tell a compelling story of why customers, investors, and employees should believe in the business venture. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to demonstrate a working understanding of GAAP financial statements, read and interpret balance sheets, income statements, and cash flow statements, describe the factors that impact cash flow in health care organizations as well as accounting systems and the reconciliation process, analyze the importance of financial controls and what to expect in an audit, identify the major concepts in developing and administering payroll systems, and construct and use budgets for financial management and creating accountability.

Healthcare Law and Ethics

In this course, you will explore the philosophical, medical, social, and legal aspects of bioethical issues in healthcare, and learn how to create and maintain a risk management program designed to provide a safe environment for your healthcare-related organization. Healthcare leaders need to understand the multiple influences on decisions faced by patients, families, health care providers, manufacturers, insurers, and organizations. Influencing factors include culture, education, religion, personal and family values, and individual experience. As healthcare has become more highly technical, compartmentalized and impersonal, many ethical considerations are increasingly complex and may be difficult to resolve. In this course, a plethora of case studies are used to explore current issues at the forefront as well as dilemmas raised by class participants in real-time.
