Based upon the successful Wisconsin Leadership Residency, the RWHC National Rural Health Leadership Residency brings together new health care leaders to expedite the likelihood of success in the leadership role. New leaders in health care often come from the ranks- employees with good potential for leadership and management but with little training or support. Attract and retain your new leaders by investing in this residency program!
Hear from a CEO who regularly sends new leaders to the RWHC Leadership Residency program to find out why he sends them every year, and what is his return on their investment of time and money.
