About PELI for Advanced Practice Providers

Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) are a crucial component of today’s patient care team and are increasingly taking on leadership roles across a wide range of practice settings. The Hanley Center recognizes the importance of these medical professionals and has tailored its Foundational Level Leadership Institute Course to support their learning and skill building and enable their success. The curriculum is intended for APPs as they take on roles that require leadership and management skills. This course also provides connections and networking opportunities with other APPs and healthcare professionals as part of the vast Hanley Center Alumni Network.

A First-in-the-Nation Program

PELI is divided into two courses: Foundational and Advanced. The Foundational Course is aimed at Providers and other health professionals who are beginning to take on roles that require management and leadership skills, while the Advanced Course provides a higher level of personal and professional development.

Systems Awareness

Systems awareness is founded on community concern, sustainable productivity, and systems thinking. It recognizes that the Provider’s practice, the healthcare delivery network, and the local and statewide community welfare comprise an interrelated system in which decisions made at one level affect all other levels.

Strategic Focus

Strategic focus measures the creative use of power, effective decision-making, and the ability to influence systems and policies. Strategic focus will develop the Provider leader to be purposeful, visionary, goal-directed so that he or she may develop a track record of goal achievement, execution, and high performance.

Key Management/Business Skills

The area of Key Management/Business Skills will teach the Provider leader to understand financial statements and what they say about an organization, how to use financial ratios, and prepare an effective budget.


The Self-Awareness competency focuses on ongoing professional and personal development that is expressed through high integrity leadership.

Health Care Trends

The Health Care Trend competency teaches the emerging models of health care especially as they relate to Provider-hospital relationships.

Teamwork and Collaboration

The Teamwork and Collaboration competency will teach the Provider leader how to foster high-performance teamwork among team members under their supervision, across the organization, and within teams in which they participate.
