This class was tough.
I would recommend this course if you are interested in learning about the business aspects of healthcare or would like to learn about various branches of business. This is the type of course you have to be genuinely interested in in order to really appreciate what is being taught. Do not take this course if you are seeking an easy elective or have no interest in the subject.
I learned a lot about how the management of healthcare works and how the healthcare delivery system has evolved over the course of history to become what it is today. The course also allows students to form their own opinions on how the healthcare delivery system currently operates and what can be done to improve it over the years.

Advice for students:
The book is absolutely necessary and taking notes is a must. PowerPoints are usually provided a long with extra readings that students can use to create their own study guides or outlines in order to prepare for exams. Reading the book before each class is a good way to prepare for the day's discussions and helps with participation in the class. Extra credit opportunities are commonly provided and can be very helpful to your final grade as the exams can be somewhat difficult.
