- Robert Marshall
- William Ward
Provides students with a basic understanding of the structure and operations of a hospital to include: organizational structure, physician services, nursing, ancillary, support services, ambulatory, inpatient/ED and hospital capacity. Using a combination of lectures, expert-led discussions and field trips, tours, group and case discussions and small work groups, students will gain an understanding of how departments in a hospital function as both separate, independent departments and, as well, as an integrated whole in order to admit, treat and discharge patients appropriately while providing high quality, safe, effective care across the continuum of care. The course culminates with student teams making a recommendation to a hospital’s executive team on an issue related to hospital operations.
