Develop Deep Connections Through Peer Learning 

The Academy’s convening experience is at the core of its peer learning model. Since 1998, The Academy has brought together executive peer groups that face similar challenges and strategic opportunities. These groups provide a platform for incisive discussions, practical exchange, and deep connections that promote successful partnerships and accelerate innovation.​

The Academy offers role-based Forums and topic-based Collaboratives for Leading Health System (LHS) executives and industry partners. Designed in executive retreat-style formats, groups typically meet in-person twice a year and virtually throughout for continuous exchange and relationship building.
