2021 marks the 13-year anniversary of the Original Course!

The Jack C. Massey Graduate School of Business at Belmont University, in conjunction with Vizient, Inc. (formerly HPP/ Healthcare Performance Partners), presents the Lean Healthcare Certificate Program Series. This series features the popular Original Lean Healthcare Certificate Course and an Advanced Lean Healthcare Course focused on Management Systems for Sustainability.

The Original Lean Healthcare Certificate Program is designed for leaders who desire to understand the tools and knowledge necessary to drive Lean Healthcare throughout their entire organization. The program is taught in Belmont University's state-of-the-art Gordon E. Inman College of Health Sciences and Nursing.

This intense one-week program gives participants a hands-on, learn-by-doing experience applying Lean Healthcare methodologies and tools in a healthcare environment.

This life-like healthcare experience using real healthcare examples is taught and facilitated by Lean practitioners, leaders and coaches each with multiple years of successfully applying Lean in healthcare organizations.

The Lean Healthcare Certificate Program Series is held only minutes from Downtown Nashville, Bridgestone Arena, the Ryman Auditorium, Nashville's Music Row, and the Country Music Hall of Fame.

"To be able to reduce waste and improve the quality of patient care of my organization has just been huge. I would say that if (other healthcare organizations) don’t do this, five years from now they’ll be wondering why they’re at a strategic disadvantage in healthcare." - Bryan Webb, Original Course Participant
