Practitioner-Led Intensive Courses (PLICs)

National Experts Teach Specialized Courses

Sloan offers at least eight Practitioner-Led Intensive courses (PLICs) per year. PLICs are one- or two-credit weekend courses taught by experienced health care executives that allow students to develop expertise in a special topic or skill.

“In the Big Data PLIC, I help students think critically about the evolving ecosystem of organizations developing big data solutions and to draw insights from real-world case studies to shed light on how data and technology are being used to transform care.”
