If you are participating independently, the online discussion boards provide a forum for these types of discussion. 

The course is taught in English. Participants should be comfortable with written and spoken English.

Eligibility

The course is most useful for health care professionals and public health specialists who have some experience in management and who wish to enhance their skills working with people and other organizational resources. Most case studies, readings, and assignments assume an existing knowledge of the health care system, labor law, and funding landscape in your country. Participants will get the most out of this course if they can apply the concepts and strategies immediately to a work setting, including being in a position to lead meetings, facilitating team development, communicating on behalf of the organization, managing conflicts, analyzing and monitoring management data, supervising and delegating work, and managing some aspects of complex project implementation. The course is less well suited to individuals in entry-level positions in the workforce.
