Program leaders recommend that participants should be director level or above and have influence over hospital policy, including both clinical and administrative functions.

The academy concludes in March with face-to-face workshops at the Jim Moran Institute in Tallahassee where participants will continue to explore business leadership strategy and the legislative impacts on healthcare provision in Florida including Medicare and Medicaid.
