Applications for the 2020-2021 Certificate in Diversity Management in Health Care Virtual Fellowship Now Closed
Diversity, inclusion and cultural competence are imperative for health care organizations, as the U.S. demographic landscape continues to change and regulatory agencies continue to implement requirements to improve safety and quality, reduce health care disparities and create more affordable care for patients. The need to understand these changes and develop sustainable business strategies to manage them successfully requires leadership that can manage the intersection between diversity and health care business strategy. For health care organizations, this successful intersection will impact the patient experience, employee engagement, leadership development, service excellence, and safety and quality. A health care organization with a robust diversity strategy can impact the overall health of their local community positively by helping to eliminate health disparities and reduce the cost of care. The Certificate in Diversity Management in Health Care (CDM) builds effective, diverse leaders who can help drive those results.
Virtual Fellowship Overview
The CDM virtual fellowship is a program that seeks to strengthen and invigorate diversity, inclusion, and health equity leaders. This is accomplished by combining an immersive online curriculum with instruction from current healthcare leaders, who serve as faculty. Fellows can expect to leave with advanced competencies in building a culturally competent workforce; diverse leadership and governance, community assessment and data collection, marketing, language services, and supplier diversity. Additionally, the curriculum highlights current best practices and trends all while creating lifelong relationships with peers and mentors across the country. The program concludes when fellows complete their capstone project a diversity/disparity action plan linked directly to their organization, approximately 10 months after the start of the program.
This year our program will consist of three virtual residencies convening in November, December, and March. The CDM is the only comprehensive diversity certificate fellowship focused solely on health care and developed by accomplished diversity practitioners. Applications for the 2020-2021 cohort will be accepted until September 30, 2020.
CDM fellows hold various positions across their organizations but typically hold positions such as vice president, chief diversity officer, chief health equity officer, and director. The fellowship is designed to meet the individual practitioners' needs by providing leadership development and professional mentoring and support as they develop cutting-edge leadership skills for today's complex health care arena.
