Virginia Community Healthcare Association (VCHA) is pleased to host the Community Health Center University (CHCU) Leadership Program, in partnership with the University of Richmond and the Virginia Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (VAFCC).
The program targets emerging leaders from Community Health Centers (CHCs), Free Health Clinics, and other Safety-Net providers in Virginia. Participants will gain experience through participation in a curriculum that includes both in-person and remote seminars and practical activities. The program offers learning experiences, resources, and support to develop and strengthen leadership skills for emerging leaders. The CHCU Leadership program consists of learning sessions (virtual and face-to-face meetings) and one-to-one leadership coaching throughout the year. The program will address the demands for developing leaders in healthcare organizations to help support the growth of their organization’s operations, succession planning, and leadership development in participants.
Each year, 20 individuals will be selected to participate in the program and a one-year commitment is required. This commitment includes:
*Coaching sessions must be attended. If you need to cancel/reschedule a 24 hour notice is required, and it will be the participant’s responsibility to reach out and reschedule. Completion of the program is dependent on 10 sessions of one-to-one coaching.
**Learning sessions are mandatory. All participants must attend. Completion of the program is dependent on attendance.
***Emergencies (illness, death, etc.) will be excused.
For further questions or concerns, please contact Dr. Angela Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CHCU Leadership Program will offer varying sessions on leadership for participants.
