Overview

 

Apply today to participate in the 2020 Northwest Public Health & Primary Care Leadership Institute, a newly developed offering from the Northwest Regional Primary Care Association and the Northwest Center for Public Health Practice. This program builds on the long-standing training programs of these collaborating organizations and is designed to help experienced public health and primary care professionals become the next generation of leaders in their fields.

 

The 2020 Leadership Institute focuses on the intersection of public health and primary care, using a health equity focus and an understanding of the life-course perspective to frame leadership development. Scholars learn through a variety of formats, including problem-based learning, in which small groups take initiative to learn leadership skills together through relevant and timely case studies drawn from real-world examples. This 9-month program includes a combination of three on-site sessions in Seattle, Washington, distance-based learning, and individual and cross-sector team activities. The Institute will develop collaborative leaders who can capably bring about health system changes that address multiple levels of the socioecological model to improve community health.

 

Our curriculum, taught by practice-based faculty and guest public health and primary care leaders from around the region, uses a variety of methods, including problem-based learning, to build leadership competencies for addressing today’s most challenging population health issues.


Who Should Apply?

We welcome mid-career professionals from public health and community-based primary care settings to apply, particularly emerging leaders from public health departments and health centers working with medically underserved populations, and those working to improve population health across the life course. Participants should ideally work in state and local health departments, community health centers, tribal health departments, community-based organizations, community clinics, and maternal and child health programs. People working with Washington’s Accountable Communities of Health and Oregon’s Coordinated Care Organizations are strongly encouraged to apply.

Approach

 

The Northwest Public Health & Primary Care Leadership Institute seeks to build communities of practice across public health and primary care sectors, and to develop participants’ competencies in the following areas:

Population Health and Health Equity

Systems Thinking

Leadership and Change Management

Healthcare Transformation and System Integration

 

Scholars who complete the program will gain a greater understanding of how to engage in systems thinking, change management, and strategic planning for population health improvements through skills development in the following areas: community engagement, managing inter-operational organizational relationships, health equity and cultural humility, understanding and using data effectively, leading teams of diverse and competent staff and stakeholders, and adaptive leadership.

 

Learning Formats:

Scholars in the Leadership Institute will participate in individual and team-based exercises, panels, lectures, and discussions, and will work in cross-sector teams on case studies to explore real-world challenges faced by public health and primary care leaders.

 

Onsite and distance-based learning. The Leadership Institute includes three onsite sessions in Seattle, Washington, as well as distance-based learning activities between the sessions. The program focuses on the intersections of and collaboration between public health and primary care. The curriculum helps both public health and primary care scholars understand each other's fields, while building and practicing collaborative and adaptive leadership skills together.

 

At each onsite, scholars learn from faculty, presenters, panelists, and each other about issues relevant to leadership development. Topics may include adaptive leadership, collaboration across sectors, community engagement, health equity, cultural humility, applying a life-course perspective and more. At each onsite, scholars work in teams on problem-based learning cases.

 

Between onsites, scholars also plan time to prepare briefs, presentations, and other activities (about 2-6 hours per month).

 

Leadership project. Scholars may work on an institute-long project that will develop leadership skills specific to their agency, linking primary care and public health. The project can be intended to exercise and hone leadership skills to achieve individual and organizational goals.

 

Problem-based learning (PBL). Faculty mentors support small learning groups of scholars in exploring leadership competencies as they examine case studies that address collaboration between public health and primary care. Scholars identify what is known and unknown about key issues in the case, research relevant ideas and solutions, and apply findings to each case. This approach allows scholars to work through complexities of real-world leadership challenges, building both self-directed learning and team collaboration skills, with peers with diverse knowledge and experiences.
