Based on very positive results and assessment scores, we’re repeating the NEQCA Leadership Academy program we piloted in 2018 and have launched the nomination and application processes for our next cohort of leaders.

The NEQCA Leadership Academy is a six-part series, providing one-day classes in Leadership, Negotiations, Financial Stewardship, Performance Management, Resilience and Change Management – all taught by international experts in their fields – over a six month period. Our second cohort will be comprised of 30-36 NEQCA-affiliated physicians, administrative leaders and NEQCA Central directors. Preference will be given to current medical directors and other physicians, who will make up the majority of the cohort. Qualified clinicians will receive continuing medical education credits and all participants will receive a Certificate in Healthcare Leadership.

The classes will be held on six Saturdays at The Conference Center at Waltham Woods, beginning in January 2019 and concluding in June. See the full curriculum and schedule below.

The recruitment process begins with nominations. All NEQCA Board of Trustees and NEQCA Executive Team Members, NEQCA LCO Presidents, Medical Directors and Administrators and NEQCA Leadership Academy 2018 Cohort Members can nominate participants, who will complete a short online application. The deadline for applications is Friday, October 12, and we will communicate decisions to all nominators and applicants on or before Friday, November 9.  Please contact NEQCA Communications Director Tom O’Rourke with any questions.
