Northwest Public Health Leadership Institute

The Leadership Institute (Northwest Public Health Leadership Institute) is a nine-month program designed to build collaborative leadership skills for public health leaders.

Leadership Institute Overview

The Northwest Public Health Leadership Institute is a nine-month program designed to build collaborative leadership skills for the next generation of leaders.

The Leadership Institute uses a problem-based learning curriculum and is guided by practice-based faculty. Leadership Institute scholars from diverse backgrounds come together in three on-site sessions throughout the year. In between these sessions, scholars use distance-based methods to continue learning.

The 2016 program is open to experienced professionals (ideally 5+ years) who are working to improve the public’s health and who wish to build leadership competencies. Scholars come from health departments, organizations, and institutions in various public health and health care sectors, including administration, clinical services, environmental health, chronic disease, communicable disease, community development and communication. Maternal and child health (MCH) professionals working with underserved populations or in underserved regions and healthcare providers working in MCH-related fields or in areas connected to MCH or the life course are particularly encouraged to apply.
