About the Program

The eleven day residential program is held annually each summer at UCLA. In 2015, we will offer the Health Care Executive Program from July 13-23, 2015.  

Participants are housed in private rooms at the UCLA Guest House, a small hotel on campus. All classes and workshops take place in the Anderson Complex on the beautiful UCLA campus. This six-building complex houses state-of-the-art instructional facilities and computer technologies. The campus environment provides an intellectually stimulating yet peaceful setting and offers an opportunity to explore numerous libraries, museums, art galleries and recreational facilities.

A number of special events are built into the program to establish communication networks among the participants. These activities will vary from year to year but have included a welcome reception and dinner, a dinner at Malibu beach, barbecue, and a celebration held on the graduation evening of the program. Throughout the program, several guest speakers contribute to the discussion of health care management issues. To view a sample program schedule, please click here. 

During the eleven day program, participants develop an invaluable network that they continue to draw upon long after they return to their own organizations. The learning process does not end with the conclusion of the Health Care Executive Program. Participants will continue to benefit from a community of program alumni that fosters mutual support around common issues and objectives. Networking during and after the program will create and strengthen relationships that will ultimately further the management education and entrepreneurial skills of executive directors and leaders of community-based health care organizations nationwide.

The HCEP program has been transformational for many executives and their organizations. To view a list of the organizations who have gone through the program, please click here.
