Clinical Leadership and Management (CLM) lays the groundwork for graduates to pursue advanced education and careers as competent and effective leaders prepared to engage in ethical and interprofessional healthcare management practice.
There are currently 4,130 jobs for healthcare managers in Kentucky and this is projected to grow by 20% to about 4,970 jobs by 2016. This is better than the national trend for healthcare managers, which sees this job pool growing by about 16.0% over the next eight years. In general, healthcare managers plan, direct, or coordinate medicine and health services in hospitals, clinics, managed care organizations, public health agencies, or similar organizations.
Students who graduate from the Clinical Leadership and Management Program are marketable in management positions of healthcare enterprises, able to assume greater responsibilities at their current jobs, more qualified for job promotions within their facility and may continue their studies at a graduate level. The CLM program provides for a more educated allied health care professional workforce for Kentucky communities (and beyond) and their patients, in turn, will be better served.
