The 11-day residential program is held annually each summer at UCLA Anderson School of Management. In 2016, we will offer the Health Care Executive Program from July 5 – 15, 2016.
Who Should Attend
The program is designed for chief executive officers, executive directors and others in the leadership team, such as chief operating officer, chief medical officer and chief financial officer. The program has particular applicability to those who have just assumed, or soon will assume, major management responsibilities. Organizations are encouraged to send two-person teams from their executive staff. Preference will be given to community health centers and other health-related service organizations that are in the process of collaborating or integrating services and whose members can attend together.
Criteria for Admission
Selection is based on the quality of applications submitted to UCLA. Final acceptance is decided by UCLA to assure that each class is representative of community-based health care organizations nationwide in terms of geographic location, urban/rural mix, size and other demographic factors.
- Applicants must have a minimum of two years’ tenure at their current organization or previous health care experience in a similar organization.
- Commitment from a co-participant to participate for the final 2½ days of the program. A fundamental element of the program is the required in-person involvement of the organization’s board chair or community coalition chair. Co-participants collaborate with the executive(s) of the organization to formulate and finalize the CHIP for presentation to the HCEP group and for implementation upon their return to the organization.
Johnson & Johnson defrays the majority of the program costs (tuition, training materials, lodging and meals) for both participants and co-participants. Participants are responsible for a registration fee of $3,750 (fee does not apply to the co-participant). Participants and co-participants are also responsible for their travel expenses to and from Los Angeles and are housed on or near campus during the program. Upon acceptance, an invoice will be generated and payment is due prior to attending the program.
How to Apply
You may apply to attend the program as an individual, plus a co-participant, OR as a 2-person team (consisting of the CEO and either the COO, CFO, CMO or comparable official in your organization), plus a co-participant.
