Healthcare Implementation Project Management

Course Code: HITT-2026

Course Description

This intermediate level certificate course, taught by Bob Futrell and a team of seasoned PMP certified instructors, is a process-oriented, practical, foundational project management course emphasizing both knowledge and skill, for traditional or agile projects. It builds on the current edition of the Project Management Institute’s Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) from the perspective of a clinical healthcare organization for examples, cases, and exercises to provide a solid framework and context for initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing healthcare oriented projects, and for building an educational foundation for professional certifications in project management. This course provides an excellent foundation for students who already have some exposure to managing healthcare-oriented projects, or who would like to manage such projects but may not have enough documentable work experience hours yet, or who are seeking to pass professional certification exams, but lack expertise and skill in all the knowledge areas covered in the current PMBOK Guide. It helps prepare students to earn and maintain the Project Management Professional (PMP) and/or Certified Associate of Project Management (CAPM) certifications from the Project Management Institute (PMI), and other organizations’ certifications based on PMI’s widely adopted PMBOK Guide. This course uses generalized healthcare examples and cases to explore how to apply the general concepts of project management in practice, in both traditional and agile environments, and is offered onsite supported by BlackBoard, ACC’s online courseware environment. Prerequisite: At least 12 months of awareness working in (but not necessarily leading projects for) a clinical or healthcare organization to understand the terms and context of project examples from the healthcare domain (project, program, and portfolio management, clinical workflows, HIPPA, new business venture, research, procurement, finance, construction, and biotechnology projects, etc.). No specific healthcare knowledge or certifications are required, but a familiarity with healthcare-related projects is desirable. The follow-on advanced course BMGT 1040 PMP/CAPM Exam Prep is recommended prior to sitting for any professional certification exams. Students should see the specific professional certification examination requirements at www.pmi.org for PMP and CAPM, for further details on professional project management certification.
