CME Courses at UTK Focus on Lean Healthcare and Change
Two courses offered by the UT Knoxville Center for Executive Education in the UT College of Business are among the first of their kind in the country and are now certified for CME and CDE credits: Lean for Healthcare and The Challenge for Healthcare: A Roadmap to Performance Improvement in a Constantly Changing Environment.
Lean for Healthcare is a six-day course offered three times in 2011: March 27-April 1, August 21-26 and November 6-11. Each session will be held at the Haslam Business Building on UTK campus. This course uses the concept of lean processes traditionally practiced in the manufacturing industry but applied now to improving efficiencies and eliminating waste in healthcare. Each Lean for Healthcare course is approved for 35.25 AMA and AGD credits.
The Challenge of Change in Healthcare: A Roadmap to Performance Improvement in a Constantly Changing Environment is a three-day course offered March 9-11 and October 24-26, at the Haslam Business Building at UTK. The course teaches strategies to manage performance and reach sustainable success while meeting the demands of changes in the U.S. healthcare system. The Challenge of Change in Healthcare is approved for 18.5 AMA and AAPA credits.
Both courses are appropriate for healthcare professionals and those who impact medical and financial decisions in an organization.
