Thank you for attending!

The theme of the 38th National Symposium for Healthcare Executives was "Leading Upside Down: New Directions." Everyone who attended will now envision ideas, implement solutions and secure results from different angles. Did they turn their thinking around? No - they turned their thinking upside down!

New Venue

This year the University of Alabama at Birmingham hosted the event from July 25 - 27, 2018, at the Henderson Beach Resort, a Salamander Beach & Spa Resort. By all accounts it was the ideal learning environment for healthcare leaders, including healthcare executives, medical professionals and decision-makers.

Family friendly

As a bonus, we partnered with The Henderson to offer a Kid's Club during the Symposium. While attendees learned, their children enjoyed crafts, games, food and more! The Henderson also offered multiple pools and daily game check outs, plus, rental access to paddle boards, kayaks, bikes, boogie boards and much more.

The symposium is conducted annually by the Department of Health Services Administration and the Center for Healthcare Management & Leadership in the UAB School of Health Professions with support by our Partners.

Year in and year out this is a "Who's Who" of health care delivering keynotes or moderating and serving on panels and this year was no different. Check out our agenda webpage to see who delivered.

ACHE Face-To-Face Credit Hours

As in the past, we will work with our partnering ACHE Chapters and will offer ACHE Face-to-Face Credit Hours so attendees can achieve and maintain their status in the American College of Healthcare Executives.
