24/7 access

Due to popular demand, SHSMD is excited to offer the Strategic Planning in Healthcare online course series again! The series received an outstanding overall evaluation rating of 4.87/5 (with 5 being extremely satisfied). Hear what past participants said about the series:

The content is easy to understand and follow and I like the use of real examples in addition, the acknowledgement that organizational culture has a lot to do with the process and success of strategic planning within a respective organization.

Instructors were fabulous and the course was well organized and easy to understand. I appreciate how it was structured and built from one module to the next.

This course was the best online course that I have taken from any of my healthcare associations. No other course that I have ever seen has broke down the strategic planning process as well as this one has done. I will be able to use elements and reference slides from this course for years to come.


The series will offer two core courses plus self-paced electives that allow you to customize the program based on your areas of interest. See below for more detail.
