KIPL’s courses provide physicians the tools & skills necessary to move from traditional fee-for-service payment and care delivery to alternative payment & care delivery models optimize the health system performance. This project will allow NCMS Foundation to continue to refine its existing educational offerings and offer competitive tuition costs.

It is a four module program focused on patient safety, teamwork and communication among teams, and evidence-based care. Health Care Leadership and Management equips leaders to become effective leaders in the changing context of health care.
