Lean Six Sigma

Lean Six Sigma is a powerful tool that enables healthcare organizations to achieve significant improvements.

Participants of our seminars develop a complete understanding of the DMAIC methodology in accordance with Six Sigma principles. They gain knowledge of lean enterprise concepts, develop skills required to quickly identify “non-value-added” activities, and can implement advanced tools to improve quality, access, and efficiency within a healthcare organization.


Health Law

The goal of this short program series is to facilitate law professionals' development of knowledge and context for practicing health law. Topics include: health system organization & financing; medical terminology; regulation, contracts & litigation in the U.S. health system; familiarity with policies & changes in health services delivery.

The series is optimally attended by participants practicing law, supporting law offices, or enrolled in law school. Discussion of healthcare regulation, contracts, and litigation will assume an understanding of general law terms.
