Sample Past Programs

Management Innovations and Leadership Development Program, Regional Association of Managers of Medical Services (RAMMS), St. Petersburg, Russia

A tailored, six-day program for 25 high-level physicians, surgeons, and medical managers from Russia.

Executive Education arranged for field visits to observe innovative practices and technologies in action. 

Health Policy Forum: Physicians Affecting Change, Massachusetts Medical Society (MMS), Waltham, MA

A joint MMS and Heller sponsored a one-day Health Policy Forum for 200 MMS physician members. The program provided an overview of national health policy, the key systemic issues affecting healthcare in the US today, and those that will affect healthcare in the future: financing, quality, reform, innovation, and policy decision-making. The program attracted a majority of primary care physicians-an audience that has not often participated in MMS events in the past.
