Curriculum Design

Dr. Valenzuela completed an educational training fellowship focused on understanding and applying performance-based training and development techniques including curriculum design, delivery methods, training technology and evaluation. 

He’s used this training to develop courses to guide physicians, clinicians and administrators through common leadership and operational challenges by focusing on core competencies and dispositions needed to thrive. He also exposes learners to innovations that are likely to have an impact in the way they will practice clinical care in the near future.

Course Structure

Because studies indicate that participants will only retain a small amount of what is taught in lectures and learning is more likely to be impactful when the participant is engaged in the activity, the course methodology is based on research from the Center for Creative Leadership which utilizes a blend of different learning approaches “in concert” to provide powerful learning. The course structure is based on a multi-prong approach with brief online lessons followed by quizzes to ensure understanding of the topic. In addition, Dr. Valenzuela provides tools and resources that can be used to help you in your clinical setting.

Course Advantages

The major advantage of this format is that it ties the learning modules with clinical leadership scenarios. Best of all, it’s both accessible and affordable. This is ideally suited for physicians and administrators with key components being completed on your own time at your own pace. In addition, because there is no travel or time away from clinical care, costs are minimal. Unlike some platforms that require an annual membership to access their courses, Lucere allows you the option to pick the topics individually and pay as you go.
