Welcome to the Board!
The tools on this page provide important information and helpful tips for every level on the board, from the new director to the seasoned board member.
Directors bring a specific set of skills and experience to the healthcare organization’s boardroom, and they need to be clear about their fundamental duties, roles, and responsibilities. The following set of E-Learning Courses is intended to provide a basic set of information about your role as a director.
These E-Learning Courses are brief (5–7 minutes long) and can be viewed individually and/or during a board education session or board meeting. Refer to the Further Reading list on each E-learning page to access our Elements of Governance® Online Series. Each E-Learning Course has a corresponding Elements of Governance® publication for further reading on each topic.
