HSP 4040 Professional Development and Supervision in Healthcare

Professional Development and Supervision in Healthcare is a bridge course for students. Core concepts of professional practice are explored and analyzed within the framework of selected theories, trends, and issues of contemporary professional healthcare practice. The course explores the challenges of entrepreneurial leadership, developing one’s own talent and the talent of others and building teams.  Effective leaders must know themselves to develop talent within their team and to lead others through example and influence. Attention is given to leading up, down, and across teams and the organization. Topics include behavior of effective (and ineffective) leaders; management for the first-time manager; recruitment, training, development, retention and release; setting goals and objectives; developing reporting tools, reports, processes and structures; and communicating progress, results, issues and concerns.
