Management Skills Academy
THE MANAGEMENT Skills Academy is a professional development initiative designed to strengthen the participant's basic and intermediate level management skills. The curriculum encompasses topics offered on a monthly basis for three hour sessions in person at the UIC School of Public Health (SPH).
SESSIONS ARE scheduled through February 2013 in Room 932 of the SPH, 1603 W. Taylor St. They are sponsored by the MidAmerica Public Health Training Center and Maternal and Child Health Program at the SPH, and the Great Cities Institute at UIC.
SESSIONS WILL be offered in a workshop format and will include an overview of the workshop topic as well as participatory learning activities such as case studies, role-playing, and group discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to build their knowledge on management practices, policies, and principles; sharpen comprehension of fundamental management issues; and practice ways to apply new knowledge and skills as a manager in a public health setting.
