Application of Leadership and Management Skills

10 Units

This course provides candidates with the opportunity to build upon their theoretical knowledge of leadership and management and apply these in a clinical work context. Candidates will work individually and in small groups on case-based and problem-based scenarios and on a real life managerial issue identified by the student. Candidates are also scaffolded to analyse their own part in leadership, their personal leadership and management attributes and their preferred management styles. This course runs concurrently with the Anatomy of the Hospital which requires students to ‘shadow’ various members of their institution’s management and administrative staff to learn about roles in leadership and management. To complement this, Application of Leadership and Management Skills requires candidates to work in a ‘management team’ to consider the theories in the context of every day leadership and management in familiar contexts. This requires synchronous and asynchronous contact with group members, course coordinators and tutors. It enables the consideration of leadership in action.
