Healthcare leaders face an extraordinarily challenging environment: continued implementation of health reform, a sluggish economy and quickly evolving clinical and reimbursement systems. Smart healthcare leaders want to know who within the various levels of government is responsible for implementing the provisions of health reform and how to influence them for the good of their patients.

During this week-long immersion in Washington, DC, you will initiate relationships with key legislative, agency and industry leaders through meetings in and around Capitol Hill to ensure your voice is heard – both during the trip and afterward. You’ll learn about the roles federal, state and local government play in healthcare and the best times to communicate your position. Ultimately, the skills and relationships that result will help you advocate more effectively and assume greater leadership responsibility.
