Who should attend

The program is designed for Chief Executive Officers, Executive Directors and others in the leadership team, such as Chief Operating Officer, Chief Medical Officer, and Chief Financial Officer. The program has particular applicability for those who have just, or soon will, assumed major management responsibilities. Organizations are encouraged to send multiple individuals from the leadership team. Organizations are also encouraged to identify other organizations with which they plan to merge, form an alliance or partner with, and then apply jointly.

About the course

The Johnson & Johnson Center for Health Worker Innovation is pleased to support the UCLA/Johnson & Johnson Health Care Executive Program (HCEP), an 11-day-residential program that builds leadership and management skills of executives of community health centers (CHCs), AIDS service organizations (ASOs) and other community-based organizations (CBOs) that are devoted to expanding the quality and quantity of care, treatment and support delivered to underserved and vulnerable populations nationwide.

The HCEP is especially designed and valuable for organizations to plan for and/or implement shifts in their organizational strategies to confront the new environment for healthcare delivery. That changed environment is characterized by payment reform that incentivizes value, a need to demonstrate positive health outcomes as well as a favorable patient or client experience, and by an increased emphasis on the coordination of care and support across behavioral, medical, dental and social service boundaries. The program will facilitate organizations to engage in planning and efforts to better integrate their service delivery models and to consider partnering with others in the medical ecosystem - so as to adapt to this new environment.


The program is held once a year, typically in the summer for two weeks. Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s HCEP will be offered in a hybrid format.

The curriculum consists of practical tools, techniques and approaches to leadership and management relevant to community health centers and other community-based organizations. The curriculum has been designed to assist organizations in adapting to the rapid and radical changes in health policy, financing, service integration and technology steering health care today.

Several case studies from actual Community Health Centers are used to illustrate key concepts and enhance learning. Faculty members are drawn mainly from the UCLA Anderson school with additional faculty from other universities and other experts.

Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)

The CHIP is the practical application or experiential component of the program, allowing the participants to immediately translate the UCLA program curriculum to improve performance at their own organizations.
