Managing Ambulatory Health Care Series: Training Courses for Clinical Leaders in Health Centers
NACHC partners with state and regional primary care associations (S/RPCAs) to offer the Managing Ambulatory Health Care (MAHC) training courses. Presented in four levels, the courses are developed and taught by Harvard faculty. Each level builds upon the other accordingly, but is appropriate for any clinical leader, especially those with some experience in the leadership role and/or prior management training.
Method of Instruction
MAHC presenters employ the Harvard case method of instruction. This method of instruction uses practical application of course concepts and provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, issues, and challenges between participants and faculty.
Intended Audience
All MAHC courses were designed specifically for busy health center clinicians (physicians, dentists, behavioral health specialists, etc.) who 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.
