Summer 2003, Second Session, LabI, 1040
course surveys the historical, social, economic, and political context
of the U.S. health care system. We will examine American health care visions
and values and how key actors are often at odds with one another. The purpose
of this course is to enhance students' abilities to evaluate the effectiveness,
efficiency and equity of health policies and programs. Emphasis will be
given to the tension between health and health care. As a key component
of the environment in which the health care administrator must function,
the political processes and roles of the legislative, executive and judicial
branches of government in health policy will be examined. Those seeking
to advance health care reform will acquire broader perspicacity by exploring
agencies, policies, organization, leadership challenges, administration,
consumerism and development of public and community health programs. The
course seeks to provide practical mechanisms to intervene on behalf of
programs or institutions.
Two Credit Individual Study Option: Those desiring to complete the two credit module for 6 total credits will write a research paper pertaining to course materials on an approved area of interest.
