Leading Innovations in Health Care & Education
In person - Boston, Massachusetts
June 9-14, 2024
In this course, participants and faculty collaborate to develop strategies and action plans for leading innovation within their own evolving health care delivery systems and institutions. Relevant management studies and case studies of educational reform are used to conduct “deep dives” into the interlocking elements of change strategies. The goal is to develop an impactful leadership style to fulfill their institutions’ educational and health care delivery missions.
• Recognize the impact external forces (eg. the COVID-19 pandemic) can have on health care delivery and education and harness these forces as opportunities for innovation
• Anticipate the disruptive innovations likely to impact health care delivery and intertwined educational programs in the future, including disruptive technologies
• Use design thinking and design processes to identify and meet the needs of target populations
• Identify local relevance of international trends in health care education and resources as well as accreditation
• Assess an institution’s structure, processes, culture, and readiness for change
• Identify and develop leadership styles that foster systemic educational innovation
Teaching/learning formats include case studies built around small and full group discussions, interactive presentations, and panel discussions. You will meet each day with other leaders from similar institutions to develop action plans for change. The informal exchange of insights and experiences among international participants and faculty drawn from multiple professional disciplines is a vital part of the experience.
