Executive Health Care Leadership Institute

IHCA’s Executive Health Care Leadership Institute is custom designed for post-acute care providers.
Thank you to our presenting sponsors, Consonus Pharmacy, Martin Bros. Distributing Co., Inc. and Right Dose Pharmacy.

Unlike other leadership training programs, this program is custom built for those who work in the post-acute care profession. It includes the leadership fundamentals you need to lead others and the specific technical skills in demand in post-acute care settings. Whether you are new to your leadership role and are looking for tips to get started, or you have been a leader for a while and looking for new strategies to navigate today’s ever-evolving environment, the IHCA Executive Health Care Leadership Institute is for you!

This program includes a mix of in-person and live digital sessions that you can attend in the comfort of your own home or office. During the 2024-2025 program, attendees of the leadership institute will participate in a quality improvement project. Applications for the 2024-2025 Executive Health Care Leadership Institute are now closed.
