Application, Dates & Logistics

In 2015, we will offer the Health Care Executive Program from July 13-23, 2015. Applications will be released in late January 2015. Please check back then. 

Community Health Centers (CHC's) may apply as an individual or a 2-Person Team (consisting of the CEO and either the COO, CFO, or CMO, or comparable officials in your organization)

Johnson & Johnson provides the majority of the program costs (tuition, training materials, lodging and meals) for both the participant and their co-participant. Participants are responsible for a registration fee of $3,750. 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.

All classes and workshops take place at the UCLA Anderson School of Management on the beautiful UCLA campus. 

Selection Criteria

Thirty-two participants from community health centers will be selected for the program. 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. Organizations are encouraged to send multiple individuals from the leadership team. Applicants must have a minimum of two years at their current organization, or if less than two years, one year as an executive or director with previous health care experience. 

A fundamental element of the program is the required in-person involvement of the organization's Board or Community Coalition Chair. During the last 2½ days of the program, these "co-participants" collaborate with the executive of the organization to formulate the CHIP.

We invite you to apply for the 2015 UCLA/Johnson & Johnson Health Care Executive Program. Selection is based on the quality of applications submitted to UCLA. Final acceptance decisions are made by UCLA, which assures 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.
