Program Tuition

The cost of The Management Academy is $4,400 per participant and includes training, all necessary materials, all accommodations, plus most meals (we will allow 3 nights for participants to make their own dinner plans). Because The Management Academy offers personalized instruction and coaching we cannot exceed 26 participants. Space is limited! To ensure a diverse class, SCHA will accept no more than five candidates per hospital.

The Management Academy includes four two-and-a-half day sessions held in convenient in-state locations. Dates are confirmed. Topics subject to change due to ever changing healthcare environment.
