HCA 507 Organizational Behavior in Health Care

3 Semester Units

Organizational Behavior in Health Care integrates the study of organizational behavior and organizational theory within the dynamic context of the healthcare industry. Students will explore healthcare organizations from both the micro-level (individual behavior in leadership, intrapersonal and interpersonal issues, groups and teams, and managing organizational change), as well as the macro-level (the organization as a whole). Future and practicing healthcare managers alike will benefit from this course, which draws deeply from current research articles, case studies, and healthcare management journals.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Analyze the major challenges facing today and tomorrow’s health care organizations and health care managers.
  • Evaluate why changes in U.S. demographics affect the healthcare industry.
  • Classify the common barriers to communication and utilize various methods to overcome communication barriers.
  • Apply the various contingency theories of leadership to today’s work environments.
  • Examine how stress can negatively affect individuals and organizations.
  • Analyze the importance of group dynamics.
