About Us

Mission & Priorities

The Center for Healthcare Leadership and Management’s (CHLM) mission is to provide both strategic and operational guidance on how institutions can best utilize their PA and NP workforces while maintaining alignment with organizational goals. Research shows that peak optimization of all healthcare providers is essential in the new era of value-based care and physician shortages.

As a part of this mission, CHLM offers a wide range of customized resources to PAs, NPs, and those who manage them, aimed at fostering leadership and management skills in the healthcare setting. Our flexible educational resources include online courses and certificate programs, live conferences, and degree pathway programs in partnership with several leading academic institutions.

In our work with institutions across the country, we have witnessed how organizations that optimize PA and NP utilization and prepare their providers for leadership see enhanced retention and recruitment, improved patient outcomes, and bottom-line efficiencies.


We are not your typical healthcare consultants. Our expertise lies in the niche market of PA and NP utilization. Research has shown that PAs and NPs are the fastest growing healthcare providers in the United States. CHLM is uniquely positioned to provide the most current legislative updates in billing and reimbursement, best practices from the field, provider satisfaction, hiring, and retention strategies.

Our team is supported by a group of national experts in advocacy, compliance, billing and reimbursement, and utilization research. This not only allows us to provide recommendations and solutions based on current legislation, but also takes into consideration potential legislative changes coming down the pipeline.
