Executive Programme for Global Health Leadership, LSHTM, Sep 2018
Course start date: Sept 2018
Location: LSHTM, UK
In today’s constantly changing environment, we face continued challenges in health including pandemics such as the recent Ebola and Zika crises, chronic disease and antimicrobial resistance. These threats continually remind us of the crucial need for strong, dynamic and resilient leadership in global health. The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine is committed to addressing this need through the Executive Programme for Global Health Leadership.
This unique 10 month programme offers experienced health professionals the opportunity to develop their personal leadership skills and professional networks. Our dynamic workshops enhance the development of strong strategic leadership, negotiation and diplomatic skills, successfully enabling Fellows’ (participants) to have a global impact on health.
This innovative programme combines three one-week residential phases held with our high-profile partner organisations in London, Geneva and Cape Town with inter-residential components providing bespoke health-topic mentorship from expert faculty members and Executive Coaching to maximise professional and personal success. Fellows will also be able to access LSHTM distance learning modules during inter-residential phases to sharpen-up knowledge and expertise in self-selected health topics.
During the residential phases, in addition to interactive workshops, Fellows will have exceptional access to high-level health leaders who will share their unique experiences and insights, speaking candidly about the challenges they faced as well as reflection on what they might have tackled differently.
Residential phases will each have a distinct focus:
London Residential Week: Ensuring health issues are high on national political agendas
Geneva Residential Week: Engaging world-players and operating on a global stage
Cape Town Residential Week: Successful implementation and delivery through systems leadership
The Executive Programme for Global Health Leadership is designed for emerging, and established, health leaders. We will be recruiting individuals who can demonstrate leadership roles in their work. These individuals may be aspiring, or transitioning, to significant leadership positions where they will impact the health of populations.
Previously, Executive Programme Fellows have included those working in Ministries of Health, NGOs, and other organisations tackling current and future health challenges on the national, regional or global scale. We aim to develop a cadre of passionate, effective leaders who, in supporting each other and being supported and challenged by the School, will together have a significant impact on health across the globe.
The Programme is delivered in English, and thus excellent English language, written and spoken, is required.
