Lean Six Sigma for Healthcare Professionals
Optimize your healthcare environment with our essential Lean Six Sigma (LSS) training. Through both classroom activities and scenario-based assessments, course participants will learn how to lead or contribute to successful healthcare improvement projects ranging from patient-delivery to finance and support operations. Participants can then apply practical knowledge and skills learned to their own real-world healthcare settings. This post-White Belt/Green Belt LSS course will also develop participants’ understanding of and experience in the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) methodology as well as key LSS tool utilization.
Prior to enrollment in Lean Six Sigma for Healthcare Professionals, completion of the Lean Six Sigma White Belt Certificate course is the minimum requirement. Students who will lead and manage Six Sigma projects are encouraged to complete the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate as a prerequisite. White Belt and Green Belt training from other educational providers is acceptable.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
- List and describe the key deliverables of each phase of a LSS Healthcare DMAIC project
- Explain the purpose of several key LSS tools and their application to healthcare situations
- Demonstrate the application of those tools in examples of real-world, healthcare situations
