Health Care Risk Financing Certificate Program - Virtual Course

The Virtual learning version of the Health Care Risk Financing Certificate Program offers weekly calls with instructors and self-guided activities

ASHRM Pre-Conference Virtual Learning Course – September 2021

Registration is now closed


Understanding the basics of risk financing allows the risk manager to tie clinical efforts directly to the financial ramifications. This certificate program will help risk managers learn key risk financing information and techniques, as well as how to better assess their own programs. From reviewing loss runs to understanding actuarial reports, an educated risk manager can engage their c/suite by talking about the financial implications of the risk management program to the organization.

We will start by looking at insurance policies and end by ‘running’ a captive – illustrating how the options of risk financing parallel the organization’s philosophy on risk identification, mitigation and resolution. Each participant will leave with practical tools to use in their daily work.

Who Should Attend

Although this program is most appropriate for beginners or those with an intermediate understanding of risk financing principles, it is helpful that your responsibilities in your current role deal with risk financing.
