WHA and the Wisconsin School of Business Center for Professional & Executive Development (CPED) are partnering to deliver an educational program aimed at helping hospital leaders understand the “business of health care” in order to contribute in more meaningful ways to better patient care, cost management and effective service delivery.
The inaugural WHA Health Care Leadership Academy, which begins in February 2022, addresses the need to build resilient and capable health care leaders with the skills to successfully navigate the complexities and opportunities of the future of health care. Curriculum planners recognize constant change within the health care sector over decades, including 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. The COVID-19 pandemic has only added to transformation and disruption within the industry.
The dual modality (in-person and virtual) five-month program has been in development for over a year. The curriculum draws upon industry best practices, while also incorporating topics that have been requested by Wisconsin health care leaders.
The WHA Health Care Leadership Academy is open to clinician and non-clinician staff and is targeted toward hospital leaders who aspire to c-suite positions and to current executives who want to advance further within their organizations.
Participation in the academy is open to WHA member hospital staff only.
Registration is open now, with scholarships available to the first 20 people who register. For more information on the program, including registration, click here
