Specific topics will include cost controls, utilization review, methods of changing public and private health policies, and political factors in health care delivery. 3:0:3Educational Philosophy:
I feel strongly that the instructor and each student enters into an 8 week parternership to discover, learn, share and understand as much of the material presented in the text book and class as possible.
This partnership is the direct result of the choice of the adult students that choose this class to advance their knowledge in the administration of Health Care.
To this end, I will give much energy and attention to providing support and information for discussion and critical thought and will expect each student to do the same.
