WHA Health Care Leadership Academy

Wednesday, February 2, 2022-Thursday, June 23, 2022

Wisconsin Hospital Association


Program Description

The health care sector has been operating through constant change for decades while navigating rapidly advancing technologies, evolving standards of care, changing patient and population demographics, cost pressures, evolving fee and reimbursement models, and complexities in the legal and regulatory environment. With the recent pandemic and significant future change on the horizon, this transformation and disruption creates a need to build resilient and capable healthcare leaders with the skills to successfully navigate the complexities and opportunities of the future of healthcare.
Hospital leaders have a particular need to understand the “business of healthcare” so that they can contribute in more meaningful ways to better patient care, cost management, and effective service delivery.
In response to this need, the Wisconsin Hospital Association, in partnership with the Wisconsin School of Business Center for Professional & Executive Development (CPED), is proud to announce the inaugural program year of the WHA Health Care Leadership Academy.


Program Objectives

At the conclusion of the program, participants will be able to demonstrate their knowledge learned in order to successfully navigate the complexities and opportunities of the future of healthcare.

Who Should Attend

This program is open to clinician and non-clinician staff and is targeted toward two groups of people within the hospital:

  1.    Leadership staff who aspire to promote into the C-Suite
  2.    Current C-Suite leaders who want to continue to promote up within the hospital
Participation in the academy is open to WHA member hospital staff only.
