International Healthcare Leadership
Teaching, Healthcare Policy and Healthcare Management
The vision of International Healthcare Leadership (IHL) is to provide the tools needed by healthcare leaders in China to devise and test coherent healthcare policy while also providing management tools to improve healthcare infrastructure. This includes delivery, access, quality, standardization of medical training and improved public health. IHL develops partnerships with hospitals, businesses, universities, and government organizations that advance the exchange of healthcare information, evidence based healthcare policy and quality of care.
Educate and Train Healthcare Leaders Around The World
IHL offers various educational programs that fits the various demand of Chinses healthcare leaders.
Our goals are to:
· Strengthen curriculum offerings and faculty training at institutions of higher learning globally by faculty exchange and joint curriculum development.
· Enhancing leadership skills and capacity of individuals and organizations to address local and global challenges by providing participants with the tools to measure the effect of policy changes and to use evidence based systems to evaluate management techniques.
· Addressing the educational needs of future health care leaders by develop specific degree granting programs.
· Allowing quick implementation of lessons learned by developing short, intense, and focused programs. This paradigm will increase the appeal of IHL programs by controlling costs and allowing busy health care leaders to attend without disrupting their work of family life.
· Promoting global connectivity with alumni and with faculty to potentiate continued learning and exchange of ideas and consultation by utilizing web-based technology to both prepare our students for course work and to augment the information that is communicated in class room discussions .
Participants in IHL courses will establish important relationships with each other allowing vital leader to leader exchanges. Following the executive program at the Mailman school, participants will return to China with policy and management skills that allow them to increase the number of patients treated and create policies that improve healthcare service delivery to increase quality.
All participants will be invited to join in an alumni network that will encourage interaction, share best practices and provide a resource for ideas and support for implementation of policy changes.
