Project Management Foundations for Healthcare

Project Management Foundations for Healthcare is for anyone who participates or is looking to become involved in projects in the healthcare industry, from any area, in any role, with or without any prior formal project management training or prior project experience. Managing healthcare projects carries complex concerns not always found in traditional professional development or healthcare management courses.
