Designed for Leaders Like You!
CHA’s Foundations of Catholic Health Care Leadership Program provides executives, board members, directors, managers, clinicians and other leaders in Catholic health care with a foundation in core theological and ethical principles that are at the heart of the Catholic health ministry.
Considered an essential primer for new and current leaders in Catholic health care, the program deepens understanding of the pivotal role leaders play in carrying out the healing mission of Catholic health care in serving the needs of patients, families, communities and the common good.
Engaging Online Experience
Online Foundations takes place in a series of eight consecutive weekly sessions on starting on Thursday, Feb. 3 to March 24, 2022 from 1-3:30 p.m. ET. An orientation session to familiarize participants with the overall program agenda and online format is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2022, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET.
Each session features presentations from seasoned experts in key areas of Catholic health care in combination with valuable opportunities for dialogue and networking in breakout sessions and online discussions between each session.
The comprehensive curriculum encompasses leadership, formation, spirituality and whole person care, Catholic social tradition, theology, mission, ethics and the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services, sponsorship, community benefit, global health, advocacy, and discernment in decision making.
Each session focuses on a key principle of Catholic health leadership to give participants an in-depth understanding of core principles of Catholic health care. Since each session builds on each other, registrants are expected to participate in all eight sessions to benefit fully from the program. Relevant reading materials and information for group discussions are provided prior to each session.
Participate as a Group or Individually
You are free to participate either with a group of colleagues from your own system or facility or as an individual. Over the years, many registrants have found that participating as a group is a great way to foster team building and to apply learnings to their daily work. Individuals will participate in the program with a group of individuals from other locations to foster interaction and group discussion.
