Abstract:

This thesis describes and analyzes the Navys service short courses available to medical professionals. The description covers course content subjects being taught, describes contact hours time a class is taught, and evaluates the depth and breadth of content. The information from each course is compared to the needs of a medical treatment facility MTF manager, as determined by the Naval Postgraduate School Needs Assessment. This examination shows that many Navy medical professional service short courses cover parts of the knowledge and skills needed to manage a medical treatment facility. The courses examined focus mainly on leadership and management skills. In order to more accurately describe and analyze these courses, obtaining more detailed information, observing the courses being taught, and interviewing course instructors is recommended.
