College is one of the best times of your life to better yourself and develop habits that help you grow as an individual and as a community member. In choosing to work in the medical field, you have already decided to better your community and the lives of those who live around you. With these professions, however, comes a responsibility to be competent with your work and capable in providing high-quality healthcare to the people who visit your practice.
Our Cross-Departmental Student Learning Outcomes
At Roseman University, because we understand the importance of developing highly-trained healthcare professionals before they enter the workforce, we have developed student learning outcomes that outline the type of healthcare practitioners we hope to produce. These outcomes include the following:
- Students demonstrate the requisite knowledge and skills of an entry-level professional.
We hold our students to a high standard so that we know they can function effectively as an entry-level healthcare professional. To ensure the highest level of learning possible, we developed the Six-Point Mastery Learning Model that holds students accountable. We even require students to achieve a score of 90% to pass each of their courses.
- Students demonstrate attitudes and behaviors consistent with the expectations of his/her profession.
Healthcare professionals are valued in society, not only for the value that they bring to their community but for the image that they represent for their practice or hospital. For this reason, we analyze our students’ attitudes and behaviors in both the classroom and their clinical rotations to ensure that they mesh well with their profession.
- Students demonstrate effective communication skills.
It is essential for our graduates to have excellent written and oral communication skills. The healthcare field is highly-specialized and requires accurate and efficient communication between staff at all levels, no matter if it is nurses speaking to doctors, doctors speaking to patients, or dentists speaking to their receptionists. Communication is key.
- Students can evaluate, analyze, and apply information to make evidence-based decisions and solve problems.
This learning outcome is the foundation of what it means to be a healthcare professional. You need to synthesize information and apply it in every individual case that you come into contact with. This skill will help you give the best analysis and, ultimately, prognosis for patients.
We hold students to high standards so that they can perform at high levels and achieve success outside of the classroom. To learn more about attending Roseman University, visit our about page.
