Course level: Doctorate Courses

The U.S. health care system is both complex and fragmented. It is critical that scholar-practitioner-leaders have a thorough understanding of risk management, as well as how to manage litigation and how to facilitate contractual relationships. Successful leaders will also need to possess a wide range of skills, including a working knowledge of resource, asset, and human resource management. A well-rounded leader will be required to understand concepts from claims administration and information technology to analyze how integrated resource management promotes operational efficiency, ethical leadership, and employee retention.


This doctorate level course requires proof of completion of a Master's degree. Be prepared to provide documentation during the checkout process.
