TOP REVIEWS FROM HEALTHCARE ORGANIZATIONS AND THE HEALTH SYSTEM
The format is different in comparison to most Coursera courses. I must say it was worth it! the readings are thorough and full of valuable information. Thank you Dr. Kilduff!
I greatly enjoyed this course, although I thought there were some unengaging digressions (mostly about American history). Overall very thankful I took this course!
An amazing course with an exceptional content that lets you understand the basic structure and functioning of healthcare organisations
Great course, tests were from the material, and Professor was very responsive and helpful. I plan to sign up for her other courses as well. Tiana J.
