GENERAL COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This is an internet-based course that provides an introduction to management of health care services. Emphasis is placed on development of skills in leadership, communication, time management, problem solving, motivation, and other critical competencies. Topics include methods to achieve greater productivity, policy improvement, recruitment, selection, and training of new employees, as well as current issues facing the health care system.
The course work consists of readings in the texts and online sources, writing assignments responding to these readings, self-generated case study and six exams.
There will be six exams in this class. These will be open book, as you may use any of your assigned resources, notes from discussions online, posted content from the professor. You may NOT consult your classmates. These exams may consist of multiple choice, short answer, definitions, listing, true false, and/or essay.
There will be one self-generated case study with two phases (Refer to Writing Rubric for guidelines attached to this assignment in D2L):
Phase 1: In at least 500 words, identify a management problem you have encountered in your work place and suggest a possible solution for the problem. This is due October 4, 2013.
Phase 2: Read at least three academic journal articles, which discuss this problem and then rewrite the case study incorporating the information you have discovered. This addendum should also be at least 500 words. Include a reference list with your case study. This is due November 15, 2013.
CLASS PARTICIPATION: Class participation is an integral part of this online course. There are numerous activities that require each student to post opinions from the readings, research, or in response to the discussion by others.
FEEDBACK ON ASSIGNMENTS AND EXAMS: For each assignment, I have given an expected completion date for grading.
LATE ASSIGNMENTS: D2L is designed so that students are locked out of the system after the deadline has passed. Please make note of all deadlines and adhere to them.
Professors have become increasingly aware of, and therefore more adamant about, plagiarism on college campuses. Remember that copying any part of someone else’s work without properly citing it constitutes plagiarism. Further, copying other’s ideas and portraying them as your own, even if not word for word, constitutes plagiarism. The professor will investigate any suspected cases of academic dishonesty. If further action is necessary, the professor will turn the incident into the proper MSU authorities for disciplinary action.
In addition to the issue of plagiarism, academic dishonesty in an online environment may include: having someone else complete any assignment or any portion of an assignment and/or discussing via any medium, even email, any exam question.
Research papers and projects must be original work for each course assignment. The faculty will not accept a submission that has been or is being submitted for another course. No Exceptions!
You are expected to do your own work just as you would be in a “traditional” classroom setting.
