McGill Healthcare Management Programs

Please note that the GCHM and IMHL programs are not affected by the recent announcements from the Quebec government regarding tuition increases.

McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management offers two healthcare management programs in close collaboration with McGill’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences: The International Masters for Health Leadership (IMHL) and the Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Management (GCHM).

Both the IMHL & the GCHM are cohort-based, graduate-credit programs delivered in a modular, live, interactive online format, with some in-person learning in the IMHL. They are designed for working healthcare practitioners from all health sectors and from anywhere in the world. Our unique peer and action-learning based approach allows you to address your organizational challenges in real time. Both programs are international in scope, in class composition and teaching faculty.
