Hospital Trustee Professionalism Program & Minority Trustee Candidate Registry
Hospital Trustee Professionalism Program:
Building Capacity for Excellence in Governance.
Across the country, hospitals and health systems are seeking qualified individuals from diverse racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds who are interested in participating in hospital governance.
In response, the American Hospital Association, along with its Institute for Diversity in Health Management and Center for Healthcare Governance, has developed a series of AHA-sponsored educational programs designed to prepare participants for board service. Curriculum includes examination of the basic principles by which a hospital board operates, including the trustee's role and responsibilities and the board's role in setting strategy and determining policy, as well as the unique challenges faced by health care governing boards.
This is a full, one-day program of presentations, discussions about hospital governing boards, available for FREE to interested candidates who register online to attend. Hospital Trustee Professionalism Programs happen approximately every two months on a rotating schedule, visiting several major US cities. Past events have been hosted in Chicago, Boston and Atlanta.

Minority Trustee Candidate Registry
The Minority Trustee Candidate Registry is the second part of the Hospital Trustee Professionalism Program. This online database contains profiles and resumes for everyone who has attended one of the Hospital Trustee Professionalism events. Attendees may maintain their profile, using connections with the American Hospital Association to be available and eligible for placement on a hospital trustee board. Hospitals and Medical Centers can login to the Candidate Registry and search for available candidates in their community and begin the matching process with them.
Additionally, the Institute for Diversity in Health Management maintains constant contact with business groups in the cities where Trustee Education Program events have happened and encourage them to support hospitals to connect with viable minority candidates for placement on a hospital trustee board.
