Lee Bewley, from the College of Education and Human Development, is the director of a new program from UofL that is specifically designed for health care workers.
The program, which entails a bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership and learning with a health care leadership concentration track, begins this semester. Critical elements about the program include its focus on developing competencies of health care leaders and the competency-based approach, which allows students to proceed through the program at their own pace.
“We have a whole broad expanse of individuals who have a lot of work experience in the health care field and may be close to a bachelor’s degree without actually having the credits to finish,” Bewley said. “Ultimately, those individuals need to proceed in their career development and be the manager or supervisor … we can get them there with this competency-based program.”
Listen to Bewley’s radio interview about the program online.
The linked radio program also includes interviews with Dr. Craig McClain on the new NIH-designated center for alcohol research at UofL, and Fulbright scholar Ariel Weaver.
