|Dorchester’s Barbara Belony Graduates from Emerging Leader Program|
A scarcity of clinical managers properly equipped to move into
leadership roles is a key challenge facing the home health industry
The Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts and Suffolk University’s Center
for Public Management has developed the Emerging Leaders Program, an
executive training program which addresses the issue of building the
next generation of home health executives but affordably. In the
Emerging Leaders Program, participants earn a Certificate in Home Care
- Many current managers have extensive clinical expertise, but
limited business management training.
- Traditional graduate level
programs are too expensive and not relevant enough to home health care
to justify the time and expense.
The program's objective is to build the management skills of home
health care clinical managers through a 9-month intensive program of
graduate school level courses that are directly relevant to the
management of a community-based health care organization.
