Dr. Gupta, who has worked as a chief medical officer in Massachusetts hospitals, will provide students with a broad overview of national and local healthcare trends including reform, industry consolidation and the evolving role of hospitals within the continuum of care. We’ll also look at how innovation is working in healthcare and how class participants can adapt in their current role/position in their organization. Students will see a more comprehensive perspective that goes beyond local concerns, giving them a strategic vision of healthcare and how they as leaders within their organization can impact and lead change.

In healthcare today, managers and directors wear many hats:  delivering quality healthcare, managing limited resources, administering complex programs.  Meeting these demands requires, now more than ever, commitment and leadership skills. In this session, Dr. Wooden, a nationally-recognized leadership expert, will help participants explore the qualities of a successful leader. Through self-evaluation, students will learn the skills and strategies needed in order to become a more effective manger/director within their organization.
