As director of marketing and development for a modern hospital or clinic, how would you set about developing a “brand” for your hospital and promoting that brand in your market area?
Question 2: How would you describe the purpose of internal consulting in a modern healthcare organization? As CEO, CEO, or senior manager, what steps would you take in implementing internal consulting for your own healthcare facility?
Question 3: Review the website of the Healthcare Financial Management Association:

Question 4: Did this course meet your expectations? What did you like the best about this course? What suggestions can you offer to improve this course?
