QBS 144/ PH 115 Leading Change in Value-Based Public Health and Healthcare

A core aim of TDI is to measurably improve health. In this course, students will develop skills to define and lead important improvement initiatives: design thinking, finance for non-finance professionals, persuasion and leadership.  Students will learn strategy, budgeting, resource allocation and financial decision making as needed to build a “business case.”  The course weaves in negotiation, persuasion, and team interaction to develop valuable leadership skills. Students will hear from important leaders from finance, issue advocacy, and public health. Each student will define a real-world project inspired through design thinking with the intent of implementing it in a community; over eight weeks each student will construct a persuasion case that includes the “business case” and conclude the process by pitching to a community leader.
