Pre-application coaching calls

A major advantage of EXTRA is the tailored coaching that your organization and Fellows will receive during the program.

CFHI strongly encourages organizations interested in applying to EXTRA to have a 30-minute call with an experienced CFHI coach prior to submitting their application. The coach will provide potential Fellows and/or CEOs with guidance on scoping and framing the improvement project, assembling the right team, and other key elements of the application. There is no fee associated with this call.

To request a pre-application coaching call please send an email to EXTRA-FORCES@cfhi-fcass.ca.
