About this course

Skip About this course

This course is part of the Certified Lifestyle Medicine Executive MicroMasters program which consists of 9 courses and a capstone exam. After completing the program, you can also apply to Doane University to complete your MBA online for approximately $10,500 (learn more about the program here).

Healthcare practitioners often best understand the intricacies of healthcare, and when equipped with the appropriate leadership skills, can become change agents within their health care delivery systems.

A focus on performance is vital for any organization. However, understanding the culture and health of your organization is equally, and if not, more important.

This course examines key change management constructs, theories and practice associated with leading organizational change. Learners will be introduced to methods for assessing key features of organization’s cultural environment. Learners will be able to apply social, behavioral, and organizational science to the diagnosis, development, and implementation of an effective organizational culture change.

This course is part of the Certified Lifestyle Medicine Executive MicroMasters program. For an introduction to lifestyle medicine, see the Lifestyle Medicine Competencies Professional Certificate program.

While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this course in all locations. edX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
