HLTHMGMT 896 - Duke University Hospital ELP

Course Overview

The DUH ELP course is a unique partnership between Duke University Hospital and the HSM program.  Students work directly with DUH Executive Team members (or their designees) to develop solutions to time-sensitive issues currently facing the Duke Health system.  In their project work, students will gain experience in strategic planning and develop a greater understanding of the comprehensive decision-making processes involved in running in a large academic health system.  Students will work with an HSM faculty member and a DUH mentor.  Final deliverables include a presentation to DUH President Kevin Sowers, the DUH mentor and the Fuqua HSM Faculty representative.
