Enrollment is OPEN for the Hanley Center’s Provider Executive Leadership Institute
Nurse Practitioner/Physician Assistant Course

Enrollment is now under way for the Hanley Center's first Provider Executive Leadership Institute (PELI) —Nurse Practitioner/Physician Assistant Course.
The NP/PA PELI Course is tailored to meet the leadership development needs of Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants and builds upon the Hanley Center’s well-respected physician PELI Foundational Course. Participants gain knowledge, skills, and tools in the core competency areas of: systems awareness; strategic focus; key management/business skills; self-awareness; interpersonal skills; healthcare trends; and teamwork and collaboration, best enabling them to lead and transform our
healthcare delivery system.

The Course consists of 6 two-evening sessions and 4 90-minute intersessions taking place over one year.  The two-evening sessions take place on consecutive evenings once every other month with the intersessions scheduled on the off-months. Because NPs & PAs will be joining the class from various locations around Maine, the location and dates will be finalized based on input from those who are committed to attend. The course will likely take place in the Brunswick or Lewiston areas, though Portland or Augusta are also possible. If enrollment is especially strong from north of Augusta, a Bangor-based class could be added. With a minimum of number of 12 NP/PAs and maximum of 20 in each class, the Hanley Center is planning for the class to begin in the spring of 2018.

Participants receive 40 hours of Category One CME for their participation in the full program.
Tuition: $4,500 (plus $300 shared cost of room/food/etc)
Deadline for enrollments: January 19, 2018
