Additionally, he has experience as a healthcare and academic consultant, both nationally and internationally.

Dr. Bleich’s interest areas include workforce issues and trends, academic-service partnership and clinical enterprise development, leadership and strategic development, clinical systems design, and complexity science dynamics. He is an author and speaker on a variety of topics relevant to health career and systems issues. He serves on the editorial boards for the Journal of Nursing Education and the Journal of Continuing Education in Nursing and is a reviewer for several other nursing journals.
