The Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (TCLHIN), in collaboration with the Centre for Health Sector Strategy at the Rotman School of Management is offering this Toronto Central LHIN Advanced Health System Leadership Program.  Building on the Rotman School’s experiences developing health leaders from across the health system, this program is specifically intended to support recent changes in the Ontario Health System including, but not limited to, Health Links.  



Program Details

The program will provide participants with the insights and tools to increase the breadth and depth of their leadership skills and to support on-going efforts to further integration within (and across, as appropriate) LHINs, focusing on patient and client experiences. Participants will develop the capabilities to be more effective system leaders.  This program is intended to support your current system improvement activities, and thus is expected to ultimately reduce demands on your time by virtue of the development of new skills, tools and frameworks.   

Specific modules will address:

  • System Design and Designing for the Patient Experience
  • Partnering
  • Integrative Thinking, Innovation and Negotiation
  • Measurement
  • The Psychology of Influence and Persuasion
  • Leading Change


The program will be offered in five 2-day modules in Toronto, Ontario. The program will begin on May 21, 2014. Modules will be spaced 4–6 weeks apart, with program ending in December of 2014.
