Program Description​
HELP provides you with critical skills to lead your organization to success through a series of seven courses. The program is designed to be completed within one year. Our goal is to bring current and future leaders, managers, and executives from academia and healthcare under one roof to ensure diversity among our participants and educators. Therefore, the curriculum and courses are designed to meet the needs of executive leaders, and the delivery is designed to fit into the schedules of working healthcare professionals who are busy during the day but still interested in building their healthcare leadership skills.

The program consists of a total of 7 courses spread over three trimesters; 4 courses (5 credit hours), 1 seminar course (2 credit hours), and 2 Capstone Graduation Project courses (1 credit hour each),  for a total of 24 credit hours for the entire program.
