Healthcare Management and Engineering
Healthcare Management short courses combine engineering tools and skills with the needs of the healthcare industry. Courses are designed for healthcare practitioners, including physicians, nurses, hospital and clinic administrators, and healthcare executives. No engineering background is required.
Most Lean and Six Sigma certification programs in healthcare focus only on a few basic tools, but in this course, we will cover more advanced techniques that are highly effective in making real improvements in operations and quality. These advanced methods have been in use for many years by managers both within and outside of the healthcare industry.
This course will teach you six different methods for solving problems and making decisions. You will receive templates, instructions, and sufficient healthcare-related practice examples to give you the hands-on experience you need to apply your knowledge.
Patient Safety in Today’s Healthcare Environment
Identifying and correcting latent conditions leading to error in today’s complex healthcare environment is no easy task. This two-day course leads students to understanding these concepts through practical, reality-based case studies culminating in a simulated disclosure of an adverse event to a patient’s family.
Process Improvement in Healthcare
The Process Improvement in Healthcare short course combines engineering tools and techniques with the needs of the healthcare industry. The American healthcare industry is in a state of constant change, with looming health reform legislation and concerns about the health insurance process. This course explains how individual hospitals and healthcare systems can increase productivity without harming quality and reduce costs while remaining profitable.
In addition to existing short course offerings, we invite you to explore the USC Viterbi School of Engineering curriculum in the area of Healthcare Management and Engineering to explore all areas of expertise.Curriculum for Healthcare Management and Engineering
