Program Philosophy:

The Healthcare Administration and Interprofessional Leadership Program’s philosophy draws from five domains of leadership and management.

  1. Purpose (setting an organizational vision and strategic direction)
  2. Process (making decisions; managing projects)
  3. People (promoting collaboration, diversity, and teamwork; managing others)
  4. Personal (self-knowledge)
  5. Professionalism (ethical responsibility; personal integrity)

The program’s pedagogic methods leverage students’ professional expertise and experience and build upon extant knowledge and experiences in a collaborative, cooperative learning environment. Theory is infused throughout program coursework and applied in mentored practicums as well as the capstone project. Competency development is determined at the interface between acquisition and application of knowledge, skills and attitudes.
