SPH launches certificate in management training for clinician leaders
The University of Minnesota School of Public Health is now offering a graduate certificate program designed for clinicians in leadership and management positions.
The Certificate in Advanced Management Training for Clinician Leaders was designed specifically for clinicians interested in deepening their managerial skills. It was developed with input from clinicians with management positions in integrated health systems and physician organizations. These professionals include physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and physical therapists. The certificate is offered by the school’s Master of Healthcare Administration and Healthcare Executive Studies programs.
The full curriculum (13 credits) is offered over a twelve-month term, most of it online. Students will complete a capstone project developed from their professional experiences with their organization.
Students will have two on-campus experiences: a four-day experience at the beginning of the course of study, and a three-day session at the end. The initial on-campus session will include guest lectures from experts and health system executives. This last on-campus session is dedicated to the presentation of capstone projects.
Coursework between the beginning and ending on-campus sessions will be conducted online through a learning environment that encourages student cohort collaboration. Each twelve-month course of study will begin in the fall of the academic year (the first beginning fall of 2013). Students will conclude their course of study the succeeding fall term.
Between 18 and 20 clinicians will be admitted to each class.
