The miniAdvanced Training Program (miniATP) offers a practical, in-depth course for health care professionals who need to teach, implement and investigate quality improvement, outcome measurement and management of both clinical and non-clinical processes.
The miniAdvanced Training Program (miniATP) is designed to train senior leaders, middle management, and front-line health professionals in the theory and application of cost and quality control as well as the health services academic infrastructure.
The course is designed to facilitate the development of skills and competencies needed by community physician leaders, clinical team members, and administrators to actively lead, participate in, and direct organizational clinical management efforts.
The Intermountain Healthcare miniAdvanced Training Program's (miniATP) purpose is to give participants the understanding and tools necessary to conduct state-of-the-art clinical practice improvement projects and use quality improvement methods to manage and integrate clinical processes.
As part of the course, each miniATP participant must select, complete, and report on an improvement project. The Institute analysts and staff provide consultation for your project.
