HEALTH CARE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

PROGRAM CURRICULUM
The objective of the Health Care Management Program is to challenge the participants with management situations and problems that they may not have encountered in their regular job experience. The course is not for credit nor is it sponsored by the Harvard Business School. It is simply an opportunity to learn in a local, non competitive environment.

The course covers many of the subjects of a one week Executive Education program, but without the travel. The students will explore several aspects of health care management and how hospitals and other organizations cope with the issues and opportunities.

CLASS DISCUSSION
The case discussion process allows the participants to practice coping with new, often unfamiliar and ill defined situations.
In a sense, it is a broadening of one’s experience in a very short time.
The following are possible subject areas for the Health Care Management cases:

Patient Safety
Service Management
Information Technology
Accounting and Finance
Cost analysis
Patient Costs
Marketing
Strategy and Business Model
Staff Development
Operations Management
Process Analysis

MODERATORS
The case discussion moderators are all graduates of the Managing Health Care Delivery Program at the Harvard Business School, and hold key management positions in Buffalo area hospitals.

SCHEDULE
Classes start on the first Wednesday in April and continue for four weeks.
The class meets at The Buffalo Club, 388 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo.
The sessions run from 6:00 to 8:30 PM.

ADMISSION
There are no educational or management experience requirements for admission. However, to gain the full value of the program, the applicant should have the reading speed and time to cover 30 to 75 pages of case work and articles each week. In addition, the analysis of the cases often requires the use of basic math skills.

COURSE FEE
The fee for the program is $200. This includes all cases, article reprints, and class refreshments. Each participant will be given an invoice for their organization.
