Now What? How to Succeed and Thrive in Healthcare Management for Diversity Candidates
About the Session
This session will begin with a review of the strengths and areas for development common to many diversity candidates and emphasize the particular challenges and triumphs they face. With this material as background, the program will highlight fundamental skills for achieving the goal of career progression and success within the healthcare field from the perspectives of hospital careerists, outpatient careerists, military/VA careerists, and careerists serving in rural and underserved areas. It will discuss how success in the healthcare arena can lead to opportunities in consulting and why diversity candidates have such a strong impact on diversity communities they serve in light of the disparities that exist in the health of these populations. Practical tools (interviewing, branding, networking, management, leadership), programs (ACHE Thomas C. Dolan Executive Diversity Program, Executive Program Scholarships, NAHSE, NFLHE) and skills for career planning and growth (self assessments and mentoring) will be reviewed.
