Upon completion of the Certificate, the student will have acquired a set of managerial skills that would allow her/him to assume with confidence a range of health care leadership roles in the public or private sector. For instance, upon completion of the program, students will be well-prepared to take the helm of a hospital-based program or department or, alternatively to effectively lead a private clinic.
The material taught in this Certificate will set a solid managerial foundation for physicians or other health care workers with a strong interest in leadership at all stages of their careers. Physicians and experienced clinicians stepping into a new role will learn how to apply concepts that will have an immediate impact on their effectiveness as leaders in their milieu.
