Using a systems perspective, you will explore basic concepts related to health care systems, professional knowledge, and quality and safety.

At the individual and interpersonal level of care, you will explore the concepts of health promotion and risk reduction and examine evidence-based strategies that acknowledge patient-centered values and beliefs optimizing health/wellness.

For vulnerable (including cross-cultural) populations and communities, you will apply concepts related to the assessments, surveillance and interventions for risk reduction, disease prevention and health promotion.

You will examine health policy and regulation, health economics and advocacy, and apply advocacy strategies for transitioning ‘at-risk’ individuals across the health care continuum.

You will apply business concepts and principles consistent with patient-centered care across a variety of health care settings. Concepts include organizational structure and finance, budgeting, cost-benefit analysis, marketing, resource allocation, innovation and entrepreneurship.

You will examine evidence-based integrative approaches that support human care processes and evaluate models of optimal healing environments that promote personal and organizational health/wellness.

During your 16-week Clinical Systems Leadership Immersion, you will work in small leadership teams with a faculty mentor to develop a patient-centered comprehensive care management plan for a population with chronic health conditions who requires ongoing supportive care for health and well-being.

Meet Our Students & Graduates

“The professors were engaging and personable. They really went out of their way to make sure we felt connected. It worked well around my schedule, but it challenged me and really pushed me forward in a lot of other avenues, especially in my role as mayor. I was actually finishing the program during my first term and found that some of the skills that I learned have helped me not just in my nursing but my political career as well.” - Violeta Lewis, Alumna
