Since 1991, the Financial Training Institute (FTI) has specialized in the financial training of non-financial healthcare professionals through the offering of public seminars, on-site training, and consulting. FTI is owned and managed by Frank Capone, CPA, MBA, a professional training consultant and former healthcare chief financial officer, who has designed, written, and conducted over 1,000 financial seminars and workshops for thousands of non-financial healthcare professionals since 1984.

FTI believes in the following principles of financial training:

  • Keep training simple, practical, relevant, and lively
  • Deliver skills today which can be used tomorrow
  • Motivate participants concurrently while training
  • Focus on issues rather than theoretical detail
  • Continue to build on prior trainee knowledge base with new concepts

There are four basic components of financial management that non-financial healthcare professionals must have as a skill set to effectively manage their department resources:  

  • Understanding financial terms, principles, concepts, and practices
  • Statistical concepts and applications thereof
  • Planning, preparing, and managing budgets
  • Reading and analyzing financial responsibility reports

Following are the primary financial training workshops available to meet the needs of non-financial healthcare professionals:
