The Management and Leadership block in the COPHP program focuses on
providing students with the skills and knowledge needed to direct and coordinate the
efforts of individuals and organizations. Managers and leaders accomplish their work
through and with others and must understand, motivate, and manage individuals,
groups, and teams. Managers also establish directions, plan and organize the work to be
done, identify and resolve problems, budget and manage the organization’s resources,
evaluate and improve performance, drive change, and establish and manage external
relationships. In this block, we use cases set in a variety of different community health
settings to explore the full range of management and leadership skills. Mini-cases
illustrate management principles. Students visit several community organizations to
observe management at work.
