Due to popular demand, SHSMD is excited to offer the Strategic Planning in Healthcare online course series again! The series received an outstanding overall evaluation rating of 4.6/5 (with 5 being extremely satisfied). Hear what past participants said about the series:
This is was an excellent course! I feel I have the right tools to help lead my organization into a new 3 year strategic plan.
Thank you so much for offering this course! I learned so much from each session that I will be putting into practice. Very satisfied SHSMD member.
This course was the best online course that I have taken from any of my healthcare associations. No other course that I have ever seen has broke down the strategic planning process as well as this one has done. I will be able to use elements and reference slides from this course for years to come.
