Professional Studies

A course is an academic class taught by instructors experienced in a specific field of study. Courses vary in length depending on the subject matter, scope of content and other factors. Some have exclusive entry requirements while others offer open enrollment.

What is a course in professional studies? This discipline is designed to help high school and college graduates prepare to enter a competitive workforce. Areas of focus are broad and often include social sciences, business, law and economics. Some programs prepare graduates for leadership roles in their industries, while others assist international students who are seeking work in another country. Industry-based programs can be targeted to an individual's specific career goals; for example, professional studies courses within health care programs often focus on research.

Most career-minded individuals can benefit from this type of course. Students learn to establish best practices in their fields, which makes them more qualified for leadership roles. Professional studies courses may also teach specific skills such as managing computer systems and effective business writing, which can come in handy in any profession.

Because the length and scope of professional studies courses vary dramatically from one program to the next, it is difficult to estimate the cost. In general, extensive, comprehensive courses cost more than shorter programs.

The career prospects for an individual who has taken a course in professional studies are diverse, since these classes are often combined with specialized study in technology, business and finance. You may want to consider this course if you are interested in high-level business management roles such as chief executive officer or chief operating officer. Many students succeed in business consulting roles in which they provide their knowledge and expertise to other companies. These types of courses can also lead to a career as a human resources manager, financial services provider, business analyst or project manager.

Professional studies courses are available worldwide both online and through colleges and universities. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Online Course: Systematic Reviews of Diagnostic Studies

Elevate Health
Online Part time 3 weeks November 2018 Netherlands Netherlands Online

The course consists of plenary presentations, small-group discussions, and computer exercises using the statistical software package R. It is one of the online medical courses that are a part of the MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate Online Program. [+]

Systematic Reviews in Diagnostic Research

The number of primary studies evaluating diagnostic tests is rising. Critically summarizing such studies in a systematic review is beneficial for healthcare professionals seeking the best evidence about the use of diagnostic tests. Reviews of diagnostic studies are more challenging because of more variation in questions & designs, specific sources of bias & variation, and the need to use more complex statistical approaches to meta-analysis.

Several advances have recently been made in the methods to perform such reviews. In this course we discuss and practice the methods to assess the methodological quality of primary diagnostic test accuracy studies (QUADAS-2 instrument), the statistical models to meta-analyze the paired measures of test accuracy (bivariate meta-regression model of sensitivity and specificity), and how to critically read and interpret the findings of systematic review of diagnostic studies....

Leadership in Healthcare

Healthcare organizations are difficult to manage. Different logics and value systems are at play. Leadership of both professionals and managers are therefore of great importance when aiming to ensure high-quality patient care, employee satisfaction, and overall organizational effectiveness. This is particularly true for frontline leaders who are the key interface between care, cure, and managerial control.

But have you ever tried to articulate a definition of frontline clinical leadership in one concise sentence? We’d argue it can’t really be done. Because leadership is such a broad, complex and contested topic, it often holds a different meaning for different people.... [-]
