“Today’s healthcare leaders are expected to effectively juggle the dynamics of a rapidly evolving healthcare landscape and balance economic imperatives with the more human aspects of healthcare. It is necessary for them to think holistically about the challenges they face and situationally lead in ways that resonate with the demands in front of them. We have designed a comprehensive program that positions participants to excel as healthcare leaders and grow in their leadership capacity to manage the many complex demands that require their attention.”

In the Healthcare Leadership Program for Executives, we present the art and science of how to succeed in today’s exciting and ever-changing healthcare environment."
— Marilyn Margolis, RN, MN, NEA-BC, Faculty Co-Director; Chief Executive Officer, Emory Johns Creek Hospital; Adjunct Instructor, Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing
