Cleveland Clinic Launches Healthcare Executive Education Programs

Cleveland Clinic Launches Healthcare Executive Education Programs

Healthcare executive training based on Cleveland Clinic's successful business model

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) January 19, 2011

Cleveland Clinic has launched two healthcare executive education programs that focus on the challenges of leadership, management and innovation in today's highly competitive healthcare landscape.

"Healthcare executives who want to lead positive change in their organizations, particularly as the economy emerges from the recession, will benefit from these programs," says program director Caryl Hess, PhD, MBA.

The healthcare executive leadership courses are open to healthcare executives including physicians, nurses and administrators who currently function or aspire to function as a senior executive for a healthcare organization or in a related industry.

"One of the unique aspects of our healthcare executive education programs is peer learning. Attendees will learn directly from those involved in the daily business of healthcare excellence," says James K. Stoller, MD, MS, a pulmonologist and critical care medicine physician and Chair of Cleveland Clinic's Education Institute.

The first program, called the Executive Visitors' Program, allows attendees to learn how Cleveland Clinic achieves its strategic goals and executes its mission through system integration. Over two intensive days, attendees engage in a series of conversations with Cleveland Clinic executive leaders and gain insight into system integration based on Cleveland Clinic's successful business model. Upcoming sessions for 2011 will be held Mar. 3-4, June 2-3 and Sept. 15-16.

The second program, named the Samson Global Leadership Academy for Healthcare Executives, is a two-week immersion program that will prepare English-speaking healthcare executives to navigate the challenges of leading, managing and growing large organizations, domestically and globally. The program involves didactic learning, leadership roundtable opportunities, a shadowing or immersion experience, and a mentoring opportunity that continues after the program is over. The first session will be held Oct. 23 to Nov. 4, 2011.

Space currently is available in all sessions. Program sessions are small by design, so early registration is encouraged.
