Health Care Financial Management: Curriculum Objectives and Bibliography.
Zelman, William N., Ed.; And Others
Curriculum objectives for health care financial management, a bibliography and examples of financial management curricula are presented. The outline of curriculum objectives identifies a core of knowledge and skills in financial management that health administration students might obtain in their academic training. The outline's content is divided into six areas: financial accounting, cost/management accounting, rate setting, working capital management, long-term financial planning, and obtaining and servicing capital. The bibliography consists of over 1,000 citations primarily for the period of 1976 through the fall 1982 and is presented in two formats: by relevant section of the objectives outline, and alphabetically by author. As a further aid to faculty, an appendix is provided that includes descriptions of financial management components of six illustrative health administration programs. Each of the descriptions contains the following information: the relationship of the financial management curriculum to each program's overall course and content sequence; prerequisties in the financial management area; and a brief description of health care financial management courses. Relevant course outlines for health care financial management courses are also included. (SW)
