Course description

As we emerge from the COVID-19 global pandemic, it is vital that health care providers stay keenly aware of the innovations in teaching and telehealth being implemented around the world. Medical leaders are reporting that their academic and clinical processes are experiencing rapid change and accentuating the crucial need to keep up with the expanding industry. The challenge for us now is to build the structures and culture in our organizations to incorporate these developments and maintain the necessary progression. Our program, Leading Innovations in Health Care and Education, will discuss the application of the most effective theories of change, as well as the construction of a shared language to promote on-going innovation.
