Thirty mid-level clinicians, administrators and other non-clinical staff who work in community clinics in Los Angeles have been selected to participate in Cedars-Sinai’s Community Clinic Initiative: Managing to Leading. Administered by Healthforce Center at UCSF, this program equips leaders with the knowledge, skills and confidence to effectively lead change and improve health care in their communities. Over the course of the program they will learn about leading in a time of change, get an in-depth look at the needs of Los Angeles' health care safety net, and focus on related topics in health care.
