Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences—Department of Health Science 339 DHS 8160—Continuing Practicum Services This course is a continuation of DHS 8140. It is used when the student is given an incomplete grade and needs to finish his or her practicum. (0 credit) DHS 8071—Conflict Resolution for Health Care Leaders This course examines and analyzes the nature and dynamics of human conflict within health care leadership andmanagement. Various methods and theories of leadership andmanagement, both in and out of health care, and their impact on productivity, profitability, and employee satisfaction will be explored. Learners will acquire and engage practical strategies to improve leadership skills applicable in a variety of settings. Additionally, critical analysis of the different approaches to mitigating conflict in health care leadership will be required to research, develop, and evaluate diverse practice environments and their role in health outcomes. Through the completion of various assignments, the learner will be expected to demonstrate mastery of the subject matter via application of the theories and information presented in the assigned readings, participation in the discussion board, and other learning activities. (4 credits) DHS 8180—Medical Writing for the Health Professional The demand for medical writing professionals is growing significantly. So, too, is the supply of individuals with advanced health science and professional degrees seeking careers both in and outside of academia. This course is designed to provide doctoral students with the foundational knowledge and skills needed for successful publication of a professional journal article or clinical case review. Methods of document preparation, proper word and punctuation use, and the requirements for authors of biomedical journal articles will be discussed. This course is not designed for entry-level medical writing; rather it is designed for professionals with a strong biomedical and/or life sciences background to write for scientific audiences in peer-reviewed journals. This course encourages good writing skills through choosing better words; writing better sentences; and preparing tables, graphs, and photographs. All students are required to develop and submit a quality paper that meets the requirements for publication in a peer-reviewed professional or biomedical journal. The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) 6th Edition, will be the required format for all formal assignments. (4 credits) DHS 8190—Health Care Education This course explores the various theories and applications of adult education in the practice of training, preprofessional education, and postprofessional education of medical personnel.

(4 credits) DHS 8200—Independent Study A This course is supervised by a faculty member and is a selfdirected experience for the student. The student will be required to develop a proposal regarding the topic of study, a learning contract with specific objectives, and a plan of action to include methods of obtaining the information and the material produced to demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the subject areas. A faculty member will be assigned to the student for the supervised study and will follow the approved learning contract for successful completion of the course. The purpose of this course is to allow the student to explore an area of interest in the field of health care or health sciences. The secondary benefit of the course is to allow the student, with the assistance of the faculty, to develop and complete a doctoral-level course of study. Upon completion of the course, the student should be able to develop a proposal regarding a particular area of health sciences sufficient for doctoral level of study, develop a learning contract and self-directed course of study at the doctoral level, develop curriculum components for an educational program using self-directed study, describe information research during the completion of the objectives, and describe the methods of developing and successfully completing a self-directed course.
