2021 Vision: Focus on Leadership in a Complex World

Unfortunately, we must postpone the 2020 UAB National Symposium for Healthcare Executives due to public health concerns involving COVID-19. We wish we had the opportunity to connect with you in person this year, but the health and safety of our friends is our top priority.

In the meantime, the Department of Health Services Administration and the Center for Healthcare Management & Leadership are committed to continue providing professional development and educational opportunities. We invite you to join our new monthly webinar series.

Save the Date: July 28 - 30, 2021

We are going back to the beach and back to the summer schedule in 2021 so please mark your calendar for July 28 - 30, 2021.

We all know health systems are complex and described as "messy" or "unpredictable", but there is a growing awareness in developing and adopting a complexity perspective in health policy. We will give attention to the benefits as well as the consequences for healthcare managers and leaders this year.

Be sure to join us with discounted rates at The Henderson Beach Resort & Spa, Destin. The Henderson was awarded "The South's Best Resort 2019" by Southern Living.
