LOS ANGELES--The University of Southern California's School of Dentistry and Marshall School of Business have launched a joint Leadership and Management Program for oral health professionals who want to develop the critical leadership and business management skills needed to manage a thriving dental practice.
"Several of our dental school alumni have told us that they have growing, successful practices thanks to all the recent advances in oral health care. What they need now are the business management skills to sustain and grow their practices, bring new professionals into their practice or perhaps grow their practice by merger or acquisition. Those are the kinds of things they'll study in this program," says Dr. Ilan Rotstein, Associate Dean for Continuing Oral Health Professional Education at the USC School of Dentistry.
The program, taught over seven months, features case studies, in-class exercises and discussion group projects guided by USC's renowned Marshall School of Business faculty. To accommodate business practitioners the course will meet once per month on Fridays and Saturdays between September 2006 and March 2007.
A limited number of places are still available for the program this September.
