Northwest Healthcare Leadership Institute

Program classes will be held in October & November, 2016 – February & March, 2017.
Application and acceptance into the program are required.
Applications and program details available online.

Purpose of the Program

While many health systems in the Pacific Northwest have created their own leadership programs, no individual program can model the trans-institutional skills required to lead organizations in a future where business, health care, government, and community increasingly interact. This program will not teach everything a leader needs to know, because the requisite skills 5 years from now have not yet been defined. It will teach all the capacities a leader will need to guide a learning organization.
