I’ve previously recommended Dr. Christian Terwiesch’s introductory MBA-level operations management course on Coursera — and, great news, it’s being offered again this fall. UPenn/Wharton have expanded their selection on Coursera to include four “MBA foundation” courses in operations, marketing, finance and accounting — an incredible opportunity for physicians and practice managers alike to explore these first-year courses (and maybe learn if further MBA training is right for them).
I can vouch for Dr. Terwiesch’s operations management course — I took it to get a refresher on my own MBA training in operations, and was delighted to find that many of his excellent examples were actually drawn from healthcare. The course will provide you with some new insights for evaluating your own practice workflow. Best of all, it’s presented in digestible online sessions of 15-20 minutes — perfect for busy professionals.
