Covenant Health Leadership Academy

Past Participants

Covenant Health Leadership Academy

The Covenant Health Leadership Academy (CHLA) is an immersive healthcare learning experience designed to introduce, expose and educate community leaders to present day healthcare issues and opportunities as seen through the eyes of East Tennessee’s leading not-for-profit healthcare system.

The goals of CHLA are to help community leaders understand how healthcare is delivered through first-hand interaction with caregivers and to make those leaders more aware of the scope and quality of the healthcare services provided by Covenant Health.

CHLA is structured around a series of five classes offered from January to May at various Covenant Health facilities. Classes typically run from 8:00 AM to 12:30 PM, one day a month. The class size is limited to approximately 12 participants so that discussions and observations of procedures are personal, informative and relaxed for each of the participants.
