Winter 2010

Dr. L. Marcus, Dr. B. Dorn
2.5 credits
Lectures, laboratories. Five 7-hour sessions.

It is not uncommon for HSPH graduates to find themselves in significant public health leadership positions. For students who foresee such responsibility on their career path, this course provides a focus and framework to integrate the overall HSPH experience into a leadership trajectory. Though the course is primarily practice oriented, it will cover key aspects of leadership theory and concepts. With a focus on the pragmatic problems and challenges of assuming a prominent role in the public health system, the course also incorporates the theme of assuming a prominent role in the public health system, as in "what I wish I knew before I became a state public health commissioner." The class includes a combination of lecture, discussion, role play exercises and on-the-spot presentations and critiques by instructors and students.

Course Note: Enrollment limited to 30 students. Acceptance into the course is based upon submission to the instructors of a brief essay entitled "Why Leadership Course is Imporant to Me". Please email Kim Kaminsky for details: kkaminsk@hsph.harvard.edu. Instructor's permission required. No auditors. Similar to HPM 278 - but more extensive than traditional course.
