This course will introduce Health Care Administration students to the nature of clinical process and decision-making in clinical care. The course will provide context for understanding the relationship between and among clinicians in the rendering of care to patients. We will explore the nature of clinical care itself. Specifically, following the model of case-based learning, and by participating in clinical presentation and analysis, administrators will gain an understanding of the process, priorities, motivations, strengths, and limitations of clinical decision-making. Administrators will also broaden their knowledge of and fluency in clinical terminology and communication. (Offered every Fall. )
