CHCF Health Care Leadership Program

The California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF) Health Care Leadership Program is a part-time, two-year fellowship that offers clinically trained health care professionals the experiences, competencies, and skills necessary for effective vision and leadership of our health care system.

Fellows attend seminars six times during the two-year program and they participate in ongoing learning activities throughout. Graduates of the program acquire broadened management and sharpened leadership skills, and they gain unique insight into the trends and challenges facing health care leaders in California.

The California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF) is leading the way to better care for all Californians, particularly those whose needs are not well served by the status quo. We work to ensure that people have access to the care they need, when they need it, at a price they can afford.

CHCF informs policymakers and industry leaders, invests in ideas and innovations, and connects with changemakers to create a more responsive, patient-centered health care system.
