The Health Leadership Program focuses on improved organizational outcomes and impact. Through effectiveness, quality, financial stability, partnership development, governance and sustainability, participants have the opportunity to improve their existing skills while developing new competencies. As a result, their organizations gain a deeper ability to make positive change in underserved communities.

The Health Leadership Program is led by the Institute for Population Health Improvement at UC Davis, and is co-directed by Kenneth W. Kizer, MD, MPH, and Richard F. Callahan, DPA.

The program has supported more than 300 health and social service executives since 2001. We continue to support our alumni, remaining committed to the development of individual leaders and their organizations.
