Hospital Leadership Training

The program includes experienced professors from Georgia Southern’s Masters of Public Health and Masters of Healthcare Administration programs who developed and deliver the state-mandated educational training for hospital executives and board members (H.B. 769). We are pleased to announce that required board members and executives of all participating hospitals successfully completed the initial training requirement by the deadline of Dec. 31, 2020.

New board members should complete training on Standard 1 through one of our monthly live webinars prior to their installation. New CEO’s and CFO’s have 60 days from their start date to complete Standard 1. All new board members and executives have 1 year from their installation date to complete all 8 Standards.

Please email us at with any questions, or as you have changes to your board or executive membership so that we can update their status in the program.
