This week we will be blogging on-site at Belmont University during the Lean Healthcare Certificate Program.  We’ll be giving you updates daily on the key learnings as well as pictures and thoughts from this group of Healthcare leaders who have traveled to Nashville from across the country!

Yesterday kicked off with an overview of the 8 Wastes and discussing the four Rules-in-Use.

Lean Healthcare Certificate Course Instruction in Nashville Tennessee.

Instructors also discussed Visual Management and 5S before the group practiced observation.


At the end of the day the class participated in a  pharmacy simulation to practice all the skills learned throughout the day.  Hands-on simulation is the best way to absorb learned skills.


For those that have been practicing Lean Healthcare a while, it is interesting to look at the thoughts from those who are new to the concepts.  Each day we ask the class, “What was your ah-ha moment today?”  Their answers are great reminders for all:


We’ll continue to update you on the course throughout the week!
