Health leadership

To tackle the demands and pressures of today’s increasingly complex health care system, health system leaders must continuously invest in their development and in new ways of thinking. In order to keep up with increasing demands, they need to innovate, realize the promise of new technologies and lead change as never before.

The Health Leadership program focuses on providing professionals in the field with actionable management tools and a proven change management framework used by health providers, life science firms, and major corporations. Over five days, participants increase their effectiveness in driving improvements within their organization, as they interact with and build relationships with leaders from across the system.

“Community-based healthcare is not only attractive to patients and system administrators. Increasingly, it’s the way of the future.”
