Enterprise Risk Management Certificate Program

The Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Certificate Program provides an insightful road map to best practices while preparing healthcare risk management professionals to balance risks with rewards. This unique “blended learning” program provides a three-prong approach to ERM concepts, strategies, and application. The program pre-work begins online on August 20, where participants will work both independently and collaboratively to begin exploring ERM concepts and strategies. Next, participants and ERM faculty meet in-person October 5-6, and engage in robust discussion, case studies and practical application. Lastly, the program concludes online, advancing the learning and in-person application by allowing for ongoing communication and collaboration among participants and faculty.

There are nine modules total, eight of which are pre-work modules that must be completed prior to on-site application. The eight pre-work modules should take no more than 4-5 hours total, and the one wrap up module should take no more than 1 hour. The modules are listed below:

  • Introduction to ERM
  • Evolution of ERM
  • ERM 360
  • ERM at 30,000 Ft
  • Leadership in ERM
  • Designing and Implementing ERM
  • Micro and Macro ERM
  • Advanced Skills
  • Program Measures and Metrics

The ERM Certificate Program is an experience – it is truly a unique opportunity for you to engage with peers and faculty. Engagement starts with the online course, and completion of these modules greatly affects the experience of everyone involved. The pre-conference modules introduce you to your peers and faculty, prepare you with robust content, application, and resources, and help the faculty customize the program for you and your peers.
