This intensive one-week program equips health leaders with the knowledge and skills essential for creating innovative and sustainable solutions to improve the quality, cost-effectiveness and efficiency of healthcare service delivery, as well as for participating in healthcare policy and reform.
Program sessions and case studies offer the latest in national health policy and management frameworks.
Sample program topics include health policy in the United States; economics and financing; individual and group decision-making; managing clinics and the care process; effective leadership styles; managing change in complex systems; conflict negotiation; and financial literacy for physician leaders.
