Launching an Innovative ProgramDaniel Matlock Apr 11, 2016
Over the next three weeks, 575 individuals completed our SurveyMonkey survey, with 75 percent of respondents reporting they would be “interested” or “very interested” in such a program. This strong endorsement of the need and potential student demand was key to completing our proposal for the new Master’s of Science in Palliative Care.
A ringing endorsement
We presented the proposal to the Board of Regents of the University of Colorado in September 2015. In a surprise move, the Board of Regents elected to suspend their usual rules and voted for immediate approval of the project. This was a ringing endorsement of the Interprofessional Taskforce that had developed the proposal and the people who completed the survey.
The Inaugural Class is being recruited now for fall 2016. I would encourage you learn more about the program online and ask you to share this exciting new opportunity you’re your colleagues.
