Plainsboro, N.J.-based Princeton HealthCare CEO Barry Rabner recently finished teaching a special topics course on healthcare management at Lawrenceville, N.J.-based Rider University this spring, News at Rider University reports.

The course was designed to help healthcare management majors at the university understand the changing environment and how certain drivers may impact the industry in the future. The course also aimed to offer students a look at what managerial positions within the industry look like and the challenges individuals in those roles may face.

Mr. Rabner introduced students to leaders in the industry and reportedly assigned readings from sources used by executives, including material from journals, newsletters and popular blogs. Additional Princeton HealthCare leaders also contributed to the course by leading certain discussions about their individual fields.

Mr. Rabner also organized a tour of a local hospital for students, which included presentations from patients, physicians, nurses, medical residents and payers outlining their expectations for the future and explaining how current trends within the industry affect them.

Corrine Pine, a senior healthcare management student who completed the course, said she valued Mr. Raber's approach to teaching the class.

"Healthcare is a constantly changing field, so having a class based off of real-life examples through current events and guest speakers was extremely valuable for my education," Ms. Pine told News at Rider University. "Since healthcare is rapidly changing it is important to know how new technology or regulations will be affecting us in our careers in the near future."
