Overview

 

Apply today to participate in the 2021 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. The Institute uses a problem-based learning curriculum and is guided by practice-based faculty to build collaborative skills for the next generation of leaders in their fields, since now more than ever these partnerships between public health and primary care are essential. 

The 2021 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 two virtual sessions and one potential on-site session in Seattle, Washington. The program will utilize 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 many public health and primary care fields, particularly emerging leaders working with rural and underserved populations on health care transformation. Participants represent, but are not limited to, state and local health departments, community health centers, tribal health departments, community-based organizations, hospitals, Washington’s Accountable Communities of Health or Oregon’s Coordinated Care Organizations, behavioral health organizations, and the Washington State Health Care Authority.

APPLICATIONS ARE DUE DECEMBER 1, 2020.


Applicants will be notified of their acceptance to the program after December 21, 2020.

  

                                  

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:
The curriculum, taught by practice-based faculty and guest speakers from around the region, uses a variety of methods to build leadership competencies for addressing today's most challenging public health and primary care issues, especially around collaboration. Scholars participate in group and individual assignments, panels, lectures, webinars, and discussions, and use problem-based learning to explore real-life situations leaders face in the field. They also work on a project specific to their work or organization, mentored by senior faculty with executive level experience. An individual leadership plan serves as a roadmap for their personal leadership development. Participants also address learning goals by completing individual leadership plans and projects. Learn more about the leadership competencies that are explored through the Institute curriculum.

Problem-Based Learning:


Problem-based learning (PBL) is an instructional approach that simulates real-world problems to drive the learning process. Program faculty and staff write cases and support small learning groups of scholars who examine the cases, identify key issues, research solutions, and apply findings to each case. This approach allows scholars to work with the complexities of real-world public health challenges. It also encourages both self-directed learners and team players.

 

Cases help scholars acquire situational knowledge, which is critical for effectively retrieving and applying information. This is especially important in a leadership context because situational knowledge is more tangible and detail-oriented, as opposed to content knowledge, which is more abstract and principle-oriented. Watch a brief video about problem-based learning.
