Management and Policy Approaches to Public Health
PubH 6006, 3 credits
This course provides an introduction to basic principles, concepts and skills related to public health management and policy. The course focuses on management and policy approaches to public health at three different levels: the system, the organization, and the group/individual level. A third of the course will concentrate on the larger, system issues surrounding the organization, financing, and delivery of health services in the United States along with policy typologies/frameworks and the legal basis for health policy interventions. A third of the course will also examine policy and management at the organization level. During this segment, we will explore organization theory and design, organization change, financial management, and crafting a policy analysis for an organizational decision-maker. The last third of the course will be dedicated to the group and individual. Here, we will explore personnel management, teams and team performance, and communication. Throughout the course, the interrelated nature of management and policy will be reinforced.
