Today’s healthcare teams face a growing need for interprofessional collaboration, creative problem solving, and impactful leadership training to drive organizational performance. SYNC is an innovative, team-based learning experience that teaches collaboration and leadership through hands-on problem solving.

While we were a relatively close group, we bonded even more, which lets us more easily move issues forward and gives us a cohesive voice.”  (CMO Participant)

“I loved SYNC and how it was a catalyst in having us examine our processes and find ways to improve leadership that directly impacted patient care.” (Hospital Participant)

Full tuition reimbursement and program assistance are available for qualifying teams.  Contact us to learn more.

4 SESSIONS

  • The core of SYNC’s program is built around four hands-on workshops where teams learn about interprofessional collaboration and leadership from our nationally recognized faculty of field practitioners and our knowledgeable support staff.
  • From June to August, participants have access to virtual action sessions through the SYNC Learning Portal. These sessions explore new concepts or dive deeper into presented topics to achieve tangible, bottom-line results for organizations.

1 TEAM

  • SYNC is an immersive learning experience for healthcare teams of 2-5 participants, ranging from practice managers and CMOs to pharmacists and LPNs.
  • Organizations are allowed to send more than one team, but each team must include a physician and registered nurse in addition to other clinical and administrative staff you choose to send.

1 CHALLENGE

  • Teams get the chance to put the latest developments in interprofessional collaboration, leadership fundamentals, and creative problem solving to use during the SYNC Capstone Project.
  • Capstone projects let each team identify a current challenge in their organization or community and implement a real-world solution.
