Course Description

IASSC logo Lean Six Sigma is a methodology that focuses on speed, eliminating waste, standardization, and flexibility/responsiveness. Six Sigma seeks to verify root causes of current performance and eliminate variation.

Lean Six Sigma for Healthcare is taught at the equivalent of a Yellow Belt. It is aimed at those who have a small role, interest, or need to develop foundational knowledge in a healthcare setting. Yellow belts can be entry-level employees who seek to improve their world or executives who need an overview of Six Sigma and DMAIC. The Yellow Belt adopts the approach of advancing the concept and potential of using Six Sigma tools and methodologies within a healthcare organization.

Topics covered include:
UT Arlington's Lean Six Sigma program is accredited by the International Association for Six Sigma Certification. Though not required, our courses prepare you to take and pass IASSC's certification exams.
