Executive MBA for Physicians program begins
The Heller School’s new Executive MBA (EMBA) for Physicians program is focused on improving both clinical outcomes and financial results in healthcare organizations. Designed for practicing physicians in positions of management or leadership, the EMBA for Physicians is an accelerated 16-month program and a curriculum that integrates the student's medical expertise with new knowledge in critical areas ranging from health policy and economics to operational systems management, high performance leadership, and healthcare innovation.
Our newest advanced leadership program
Our newest program is a partnership with Maine's new statewide Physician Executive Leadership Institute (PELI). The Heller School-Hanley Center PELI Advanced Executive Leadership Course begins on May 1, 2014. The Advanced Course has been planned in cooperation with the Heller School faculty and will build upon the national quality leadership programming that the Heller School offers in other locations in the United States and Europe. Over the next five years, we will work with the Hanley Center to provide executive leadership training to help the transformation of Maine's healthcare delivery system at both the local and state levels. Physician leaders from across the state of Maine are invited to enroll in this one-year course designed to build on their leadership and management skills.
Leadership Program in Health Policy and Management
Our flagship program is an annual six-day Leadership Program in Health Policy and Management for high-level health care professionals sponsored by the American College of Surgeons (ACS), the Thoracic Surgery Foundation, and 14 surgical societies.
