About the event

FNHMA Intensive courses are delivered over a nine-week period with a five-day on-site session with an experienced instructor. The intensive courses provide the opportunity for networking, on-site support, group work, and enhanced discussion for an enriched learning environment.  

Each course will incorporate an orientation session, assignment support sessions with an FNHMA capacity developer, and ongoing guidance from your instructor.

The intensive course fees are aligned with other professional development associations, and the intensive delivery format provides our participants with:

  • Opportunities to network with other Health Directors/Managers,
  • Dialogue, discussion and learning from others,
  • Support from the instructor and participants,
  • Group problem-solving, and
  • Enhanced opportunity for mentorship and coaching.


Course 100 is the first of our five courses and will provide you with a strong foundation for further learning in the CFNHMP. The lessons will begin by taking you through the relevance of history to the current health status of First Nations communities. The importance of policy-making at national, provincial, regional and community levels is examined. Learners will then explore how communities are situated within a broader system and will then be taught to identify the linkages that will create a more effective continuum of care. 

Other lessons will support the learners’ understanding of accountable governance, and this will be reviewed through a community health lens. Additionally, new strategies are presented to mediate the challenge of recruitment and retention of health human resources in First Nations. 

Furthermore, lessons will support a sound understanding of health programs and services, the determinants of health, and epidemiology. This leads to the identification of community needs and the establishment of effective programs and services. The course concludes with a forward-looking perspective that addresses current issues and trends and what the future should look like.

Please note: *Courses must have a minimum of 10 participants to be offered. FNHMA will confirm where the course will be held once registration is full. 

FNHMA can provide intensive courses by request if an organization is interested in hosting a session. Please contact if you would like to discuss hosting one in your region.
