Course Description:
HC466 Planning and Organizing Community Health Services: Organization and management of community based and public health agencies. Strategic planning for national, state, and local trends, community needs, and projected changes in society and health care. Administration of personnel, information systems, accreditation requirements, facilities, finances, external services contracts, community relations, and technology in clinics, home health, schools, industry, and other community based agencies. 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:
My educational philosophy is to treat students as adult learners, exchanging views, opinions, thoughts, ideas, and real world experiences relating to health care system. Readings and examinations contribute to the learning process; however, participation in this class is very important. I do not believe in doing "busy work" which does not contribute to learning. There will be total academic freedom in my classroom.
