The Massachusetts Institute for Community Health Leadership (MICHL) is an 18-day educational program that takes place over the course of nine (9) months (September to May). As in the past, the curriculum is designed to build participant capacity to understand, recognize, and respond to structural racism through peer-to-peer exchanges and collaborative learning experiences. 

The MICHL experience is designed to help participants develop practical, hands-on leadership capacities and skills that will enhance their personal effectiveness, and that of their organization, in addressing challenges and opportunities in today’s increasingly complex health care system. In addition, the experience is designed to build a network of colleagues from across the Commonwealth who are dedicated to addressing the health care needs of Massachusetts residents who are economically, socially, ethnically, and racially marginalized.
