The School of Public Health and Health Services, Department of Health Services Management and Leadership at The George Washington University (GWU) Medical Center is accepting applications for the Community Health Center Management Certificate program.
This certificate program, closely affiliated with the Geiger Gibson Program in Community Health Policy and with the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC), is designed in an executive format to respond to the growing demand for graduate training tailored to the needs of on-the-job administrative and clinical managers within the national Community Health Center (CHC) movement. Course content has been guided by a national Advisory Group convened through NACHC to provide learners with the skills needed for successful CHC management. Through education, training and research in CHCs and the populations they serve, the Geiger Gibson Program at GWU shares the core mission of the CHC program to assure access to quality health care services for all and to eliminate health disparities.
The goal of the Certificate in Community Health Center Management is to provide quality training for the next generation of CHC administrative and clinical leaders and to offer opportunities for continuous life-long learning and sharing best practices throughout the careers of graduates.
Applications for the January 2011 entering class are due no later than November 1, 2010. Applicants must apply online via SOPHAS (www.sophas.org). [Note: a brief extension may be granted upon email request by 11-1-10 to the Program Director, Dr. Cunningham, at firstname.lastname@example.org.]
