The program assists new and experienced administrators with similar academic and administrative responsibilities to develop and enhance critical leadership and management competencies. The Institute’s objective is to ensure that Fellows have a positive impact on their institutions, and that COMs have the leadership necessary to meet the challenges and identify the opportunities presented by a dynamic health care environment.
