Certificate in Leadership for Healthcare Management

With the pandemic of 2020, the delivery, receiving and payment for healthcare services has changed forever. Telehealth, movement to outpatient, unclear government regulations and artificial intelligence are but a few of the trends that have now become the norm. And the business of healthcare must change as well. Healthcare business leaders must acquire new knowledge and skills in order for their organizations to survive and thrive in these tumultuous times. The change also presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for those who can embrace this time of fundamental business transformation.

Traditional education and training have not prepared healthcare professionals for the new environment. In response to this need, the Office of Executive Education at the top-ranked UCI Paul Merage School of Business presents the prestigious Certificate in Leadership for Healthcare Management (CLHM) program. Now is the time to acquire the new knowledge and skills necessary to thrive and lead in the evolving healthcare landscape.
