NACHC CEO Institute

NACHC CEO Institute (CEOI) March through August 2018
“Kick-off Session” March 12 – 13

Alexandria, VA

Early bird deadline extended through February 22!

The NACHC CEO Institute (CEOI) is designed for new health center CEOs to ensure that you have the training, resources, and support you need to successfully lead your health center in today’s ever changing healthcare environment. This curriculum is designed with the “new” CEO in mind (less than 2 years of experience), but is open for all to apply.  During the course of this six-month program  you will use the real-life challenges you are facing today to develop strategic leadership skills, health center knowledge, and peer contacts that you can use now and throughout your career.
The CEOI’s curriculum is designed to help you stay grounded in the “big picture” – on the long-term strategy and mission of the health center – not tangled up in the short-term fires that can distract you from your overarching job as CEO.  This interactive and action-oriented program provides a learning experience that meets the training needs of new CEOs.
