Participants from Tennessee Oncology in Nashville Tenn., recently completed professional training from the University of Georgia’s Center for Continuing Education. The 12 participants, who range from directors to project leaders, earned their Green Belt certification through the Georgia Center’s Lean Six Sigma Green Belt for Healthcare Organizations eight-week online program. The Lean Six Sigma credential is a valuable one and proves that these individuals have the skills to solve quality problems and improve processes. The 40-hour program, which combines several methodologies, including Six Sigma, DMAIC, and Lean, is instructed by Dr. May McShane Vaughn – a Six Sigma Black Belt and Quality Engineer and Reliability Engineer who holds American Society for Quality certifications.
