Clinical Leadership and Management (bachelor’s degree)

What is Clinical Leadership and Management?
The Clinical Leadership and Management Program prepares graduates for leadership and managerial responsibilities in various health care settings. It also serves as a bridge to graduate studies.

What careers or educational options can I pursue with a Clinical Leadership and Management degree?
Clinical Leadership and Management (CLM) graduates are sought-after in management positions in health care enterprises. Those currently working in health care are able to assume greater responsibilities and are more qualified for job promotions. CLM graduates may also opt to pursue their graduate-level studies.

Program Tracks
Students may enter the CLM program through two tracks: 

  • Track A is designed for health care professionals with an associate degree.
  • Track B is designed for freshman, entry-level students.

Are CLM graduates eligible to sit for any licensure examinations?
The Clinical Leadership and Management Program curriculum has been reviewed by the Kentucky Board of Licensure for Nursing Home Administrators and designated as meeting the academic requirements to sit for this examination. Students who have the proper experience, need not complete an Administrator in Training (AIT) experience as a requirement. For students who need to complete an AIT, the CLM program offers a practicum course with course credit awarded. This credit can also be used as an elective in the completion of the CLM degree.
