Maine's Health Leadership Development (HLD) program is an intensive 16-day program that takes place over an eight month period beginning each September. Monthly sessions are held on Thursdays and Fridays at Maple Hill Farm in Hallowell, just outside Augusta. A three-day Hurricane Island Outward Bound School session occurs in October. HLD is a unique blend of individual collaborative leadership skillbuilding, combined with mentorships and Health Content sessions aimed at helping individuals better understand Maine's complex, ever-changing health and health care environment.
Physicians, nurses and others who participate in HLD are eligible to receive continuing education credits.
