Back to Executive Leadership Program


Take the next step in your leadership evolution. Apply today.

Are you a current health insurance plan leader with the desire to engage in a discussion about where the industry is going and your role in its future? Apply today. All applications and supporting information must be received by AHIP on or before March 9, 2018 to be considered. The new incoming 2018-19 class will be announced in April, 2018.

In this program, you will meet and have meaningful interactions with health plan and health care colleagues from across the country you wouldn’t otherwise meet. It provides you with the opportunity to expand your knowledge of the industry through first-hand conversations with others facing similar challenges. It also provides unparalleled leadership development that spans the entire year unlike typical leadership development courses that span an 8-hour session. I have grown as a leader thanks to this program.
