Fund for Healthcare Leadership

Dolan Executive Diversity Program. The Senior Executive and Executive Programs are designed to accelerate a high-level executive learning experience, while the Thomas C. Dolan Executive Program prepares mid- and senior-level careerists from underrepresented groups to ascend to the C-suite of hospitals, health systems and other healthcare organizations.
