Managing Ambulatory Health Care Series: Training Courses for Clinical Leaders in Community Health Centers

NACHC partners with state and regional primary care associations (S/RPCAs) to offer community health centers the Managing Ambulatory Health Care (MAHC) training courses. The courses, presented in four levels are developed and taught by Harvard faculty. Although participants are encouraged to attend each training course in order as each level builds upon the other accordingly it is appropriate for any Clinical Leader, especially those with some experience in the leadership role and/or prior management training.
*To ensure a group size conducive to fostering meaningful connections and full participation, all MAHC course sizes are limited to 50 participants. Reserve your place – apply for a course today!
What is the course method of instruction?
MAHC courses are facilitated by experts who employ the Harvard case method of instruction. This method of instruction uses practical application of the concepts presented and engages a dynamic forum for the exchange of ideas, issues, and challenges between participants and faculty. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to network and tap the collective experience of clinicians from across the country dealing with exactly the same challenges as you.
Who should attend?
These intensive four-day programs were designed specifically for health center clinicians (physicians, dentists, behavioral health specialists, etc.) who have undertaken significant managerial responsibilities, yet are unable to take time away from the organization to complete a degree program in public health or health administration. (Note MAHC3 & 4 require a 2-person team to attend.)
