Certificate in Healthcare Management and Professional Certificate in Health Care Leadership
Vermont is at the heart of national trends in health care reform and while the nation grapples with the economics and politics of health care, providers and managers are left to interpret and implement evolving priorities, policies and practices. The shifting political, economic, and social landscape affects how health care is delivered. What does that mean in day-to-day practice? How might such changes affect various stakeholders: consumers, employers, providers, insurers, regulators, and public policymakers?
As a professional, how can you better understand the impact of emerging federal and state health care policies? How might cost, quality and access be affected? How can you manage all of these changes? What tools and strategies can you use?
The University of Vermont offers two programs to help develop the leadership tools and strategies for management positions that impact emerging federal and state healthcare policies.
The Certificate in Healthcare Management, an 18-credit graduate level program, can provide you with the skills to become a successful leader in navigating this rapidly changing health care environment. You may come to the program with or without experience as a manager or clinician and you’ll leave with an invaluable base of knowledge and skills to position you for advancement or successful entry into the sector.
A Professional Certificate in Health Care Leadership offers an intensive, skill-based seminar series for professionals and practitioners working on the front end of healthcare reform in and around Vermont. New to UVM in the 2013 Fall Semester, you will learn from instructors who are working to implement and navigate healthcare reform and its impacts on healthcare related occupational fields.
