About the Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Management

The Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Management (GCHM) is a joint initiative between the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Desautels Faculty of Management. The program focuses on a range of managerial skills to positively impact the quality, efficiency, and fiscal responsibility of health care delivery. This includes: leading transformation, financial management and analysis, leading and managing people, conflict resolutions and negotiations, process analysis in health care settings, managing and improving quality in health care systems, and health management.

The program will be supported through readings, individual and group assignments, and workshops. Each student will also participate in an experiential (CAPSTONE) project throughout the certificate program, which serves to reinforce the material presented in each course, under the guidance of a unique mentor. The topic of the project could take the form of a business plan, quality improvement project, or position paper on a topic related to the learning in the program.

The GCHM is a 9-month, 15-credit graduate program which takes place entirely online over 4 modules. These 15 graduate credits can be brought forward for Advanced Standing in the International Masters for Health Leadership program at McGill.
