League & Suffolk University Certificate Program:

2022-2023 Community Health and Community Health Center Management Certificate

Since 2002, the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers has partnered with Suffolk University's Moakley Center to offer a Certificate in Community Health and Community Health Center Management. The goal of the program is to provide employees of health centers the opportunity to access affordable graduate level education. In turn, their participation builds the internal capacity in health centers by equipping them with the new skills and advanced management tools.

This distinctive certificate program cultivates and supports opportunities for public and nonprofit sector employees to share ideas and promote community engagement while enhancing communication, networking and problem solving between and among health centers.

Our eight-month, health center-focused curriculum includes modules in health policy, human resources, leadership, grant writing, finance and marketing. Participants attending these sessions earn up to 12 credit waivers toward future graduate studies at Suffolk University's MPA Program.

In 2019, Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) identified the League's Suffolk program as one of the "most effective" workforce training the League conducts.

All classes will be online, but will be meeting in person on 9/16/2022, 1/6/2023, 2/24/2023 , and 4/14/2023 as well as at graduation. The location of the in-person classes will be Suffolk University 120 Tremont St, 5th floor (AKA Suffolk Law).The times will be from 9:00am to 4:00pm online (with breaks in between) with exception of the last block that runs 8:30am to 4:30pm each scheduled Friday.

The application cycle for the 2022-2023 cycle is now open until August 31st, 2022.
