Educational Philosophy: Education must involve learning and application. This course will provide learning opportunities for students through readings and lectures. Through exams and especially through class discussions and case studies, students will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned - to demonstrate that the information is useful in the real-world, day-to-day management of a healthcare organization.
Two 100-point exams
One 100-point presentation
Ten points of class participation
Late Submission of Course Materials: If a student cannot make it to an exam or presentation, he/she must contact the instructor prior to that class period to make alternative arrangements, unless it is an emergent situation.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Please feel free to ask questions that you may have. Chances are good that someone else also has the same questions. Additionally, your question may spark a discussion, which often is where the really great learning takes place. The primary, hard-and-fast rule is to be respectful of one another.

Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-89Integrity is essential to a successful professional, especially in healthcare, an industry in which our customers seek our services at times in which they are most vulnerable. The practice of principled behavior must begin in one's academic training. Therefore, please be familiar with the academic honesty guidelines in the Park University Undergraduate Catalog. Academic misconduct will be taken seriously and will be addressed appropriately and fully. Ignorance of academic misconduct guidelines is not an excuse
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2005-2006 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 89-90Because of the nature of the course structure, multiple topics will be discussed during each class session. Also, issues that are discussed in class but not necessarily in the assigned readings may be covered on exams.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .
THE SYLLABUS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Good discussion can sometimes cause a lecture to be pushed back or rearranged, so it is important to be a little flexible. All of the course material will be covered; however, a chapter may be covered on a day that is different from the syllabus schedule. I will let you know when this occurs and how it could impact what is or is not covered on a particular exam.
REGARDING OFFICE HOURS: Although I have a full-time job at KUMC, I am happy to schedule office hours by appointment. Feel free to contact me to schedule office hours as needed.
