ACHE Senior Executive Program

The Senior Executive Program prepares senior healthcare leaders for complex environments and new challenges. Past participants have been senior directors, vice presidents, COOs, CNOs and CFOs—many of whom aspire to be a chief executive officer and believe the Senior Executive Program assists them in that goal. It consists of three sessions, each two-and-a-half days in length. Locations and dates are as follows: Chicago (June 21–23), San Diego (August 9–11) and Orlando (October 18–20).
Participants grow professionally in a supportive learning environment over the three sessions. The Senior Executive Program includes such relevant topics as improving board relationships, increasing personal influence, financial management in the era of payment reform, confronting disruptive behavior, influencing public policy and reducing medical error.

Enrollment is limited to 25 healthcare executives. For those individuals whose organization lacks the resources to fully fund their tuition, a limited number of scholarships are available. For more information, contact Rebecca Stacy, program coordinator, Division of Education, at (312) 424-9362 or go to
