General Information

Innovative Healthcare Leadership
Violetta Gerasymenko, Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurship,

Description and Requirements

Leadership has always been important at all levels of the health sector. Health organizations are expected to innovate, either in terms of adopting new treatments and models of care. Moreover, health organizations more than ever need to work to develop, evaluate, and implement innovations. Those who lead these organizations face many challenges. They must balance many competing responsibilities, engage with a wide range of stakeholders, including those who pay for patient care and those who pay for research. Such leaders must also manage complex partnerships, typically spanning the public and private sectors.

The Innovative Healthcare Leadership MC is targeted for managers and other healthcare professionals in leadership roles with a goal to familiarize them with the healthcare leadership practices and approaches and make them familiar with a process of ideation and creative thinking aimed at providing tools for complex problem identification and solving.

The healthcare industry is currently facing new internal and external challenges that require managers and leaders to figure out how to do more with less. Students, preparing for future healthcare roles and existing healthcare professionals alike, will need to acquire new knowledge and skillsets that will help them navigate an ever-changing volatile market.

To bridge this knowledge gap students will learn key principles and practices of healthcare management,
learn how healthcare organizations assess and adapt to change using ideation, and creative thinking, to develop new evidence-based strategies to eliminate waste and create new efficiencies in processes, procedures, and policy.

H436 has H210 and H250 as prerequisites. Both these courses are part of the Innovative Healthcare Management microcredential, to be proposed by CPHHS. Students will be expected to complete the Innovative Healthcare Management microcredential prior to completing this microcredential.
