BU Interprofessional Leadership in Healthcare Certificate

About the Program

This five-month, fully online certificate program equips learners with the knowledge and skills to effectively lead interprofessional teams. Our program is designed for individuals with three or more years of professional experience in any health profession or setting, who lead, or aspire to lead, interprofessional teams. Learners participate in weekly live, online classrooms and engage with self-paced online learning modules featuring interactive exercises, videos, and journals. The online live classroom sessions use Project ECHO® to facilitate technology-enabled, peer-to-peer, collaborative learning, which adopts an ‘all teach, all learn’ approach.

This certificate program was developed through a partnership between Sargent College and BU School of Social Work, with support from BU Digital Learning and Innovation and the Office of Distance Education. The development process is described in the Q&A: Exploring Alumni Mentoring at BU.
