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 the relationships between hospitals and the communities they serve.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Assessment for this course will include the following:
1. Two exams and one final projects will be required of students (see attached project guidelines).
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses.

Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business.
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.
