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 for those who have just, or soon will, assumed major management responsibilities. Organizations are encouraged to send multiple individuals from the leadership team. Organizations are also encouraged to identify other organizations with which they plan to merge, form an alliance or partner with, and then apply jointly.
Criteria for Admission
Forty participants will be selected for the program. 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 and AIDS service 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 participant, a two-person team from the same organization, or as a collaborative entity from related organizations. For each application type, you must still obtain the commitment of a co-participant (Board Chair or other board member) to attend the last 2 ½ days of the program.
The deadline to apply to the program is April 29, 2016. Only 40 participants will be selected, along with a short waitlist.
