This course is the first of a two-part series (ALD 503 and ALD 504) that provides students with health care leadership and management knowledge and skills necessary for the development, implementation, and evaluation of health professions education programs in health care systems. Students will participate in multiple sessions that focus on either health care leadership or health care systems management in each of the two courses, but must participate in all the required sessions be the end of ALD 504:Health Systems and Educational Leadership 2. Since most sessions are offered only once during a calendar year, students must select sessions based on their availability so that the student completes all the required sessions by the end of ALD 504. In the educational leadership component of the series students will review emotional intelligence, theories of teamwork, teambuilding, resonant leadership, conflict and dialogue, and clinical ethics among other theories and demonstrate their ability to apply these theories through small group discussions, role splay and case studies during interactive and engaging classes. The health care management component of the series gives the student the opportunity to explore business concepts in budget, finance, and link their understanding of these principles to those of adult education. Ultimately, the master's student will be well prepared to transfer his knowledge of the business side of the healthcare industry onto his or her future students. During this course students must actively participate in a minimum of 31 contact hours in the sessions listed below, develop a research question related to educational leadership or health care system management, outline a research proposal to answer the research question posed, and write a literature review related to this research question.
