From the NPHLI:

Since 2003, the North­west Public Health Leader­ship Insti­tute has helped experi­enced public health profes­sionals become the next gener­a­tion of leaders. Appli­ca­tions are now open to experi­enced profes­sionals in all health and public health fields, with maternal and child health (MCH) profes­sionals and health care providers encour­aged to apply. 

With faculty and guest presen­ters, our curriculum builds leader­ship compe­ten­cies through varied methods, including problem-based learning. Diverse scholars meet in three-day on-site sessions in May, August, and November, with distance-based learning in between. 

As part of the program, partic­i­pants will: 

  • Complete a leader­ship project, integrated with your current workplace 
  • Analyze real-world public health leader­ship cases 
  • Learn how the life course approach is connected to health equity and health reform 
  • Gain skills from faculty and presen­ters for imple­menting systems change 
  • Develop person­al­ized leader­ship devel­op­ment work
