How can we redesign, and improve, Canadian healthcare? Without question, in our current environment of changing demographics and population demands, every healthcare system on the planet has room for improvement. At the Rotman School, we are aware of the important challenges and questions faced by healthcare professionals and managers worldwide. With a view to making meaningful impact on the industry, our Major in Health Sector Management is designed to help tackle these issues and work towards creating world class healthcare systems.
Through this major you can study important topics such as: the commercialization of life-science products, the role of the private sector in the industry and performance management, governance and control. You’ll also be able to learn about such areas as Health Sector Strategy and Organization, Pharmaceutical Strategy and Healthcare Consulting. Whether you are a physician looking to refine your management skills or a healthcare administrator looking to gain specialized knowledge in your field, this may be a great option for you.
Jia Inacio (Evening MBA 2017) and Rishie Seth (Evening MBA 2017) are both healthcare practitioners benefiting from Rotman’s close research ties to the health sector. With Rotman’s Morning or Evening MBA programs, working professionals have the option to accelerate their careers and work on their MBA at the same time. Jia works at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and Rishie is a physician at St Joseph’s hospital; both students agree that this program will help them make an impact on the future of their organization and the healthcare system in Ontario.
Wondering about the actual classroom experience? We have the perfect opportunity for you to sample an MBA class on May 31, 2016. We invite to attend and meet us at our sample class Aligning the Stars: Using Systems Thinking to (Re)Design Canadian Healthcare.
This sample class will open your eyes to different ways of thinking about a management problems and will point you to system thinking as a tool to redesign healthcare systems and healthcare organizations. You will learn from none other than Professor Brian Golden, Vice-Dean, Professional Programs and the Sandra Rotman Chaired Professor in Health Sector Strategy at the Rotman School of Management, The University of Toronto, and The University Health Network.
The sample class is based on his research with the Veterans Administration’s Health System in the U-S. – a publicly funded health system remarkably similar to those in Canada. Professor Golden will reveal the levers that leaders of health systems and healthcare organizations can use to move from woefully under-performing to world class.
If you are a healthcare professional interested in expanding and deepening your knowledge of the health sector and tackling common management challenges, or you are interested in growing your strategic thinking, we would love to meet you at this sample class! Register to Aligning the Stars, and we look forward to seeing you on May 31.
