Welcome to this initial blog entry on my thoughts about health management education and how this activity can shape a better health care system. I do not presume to be the final word about this topic but as one of several hundred program directors and faculty in health management, I do have a number of thoughts and concerns about the state of health management education. In general, I am very optimistic about the role of health management education in preparing leaders for this critically important field of practice. About once a week or so, I will put some of my thoughts and ideas into writing and post them in this space. I invite you to read, comment, think and react to what I and others are saying.

Thanks for joining me in this new adventure and I look forward to hearing from you.
