New partnership agreement serves as an avenue to promote excellence in the health leadership field
The Schulich Executive Education Centre (SEEC) has established a new strategic alliance with the Canadian College of Health Leaders (CCHL) to increase the leadership capabilities of health care managers in Canada.
Through this agreement, participants in the Schulich Mini-MBA: Physician Business Leadership Program will work towards obtaining their Certified Health Executive (CHE) designation, the only certification program for all Canadian health leaders. This program offers individual leaders several benefits including support for lifelong learning in health services leadership; assistance with career advancement; peer recognition and also serves as an essential career designation.
Brenda Lammi, vice-president, Leadership and Professional Development at the CCHL, said: “We are excited about this collaboration with York University’s Schulich Executive Education Centre, who show their commitment to health leadership by becoming LEADS certified and committing to have the CHE as a preferred designation for their students.”
“This new partnership and LEADS certification is a true win-win agreement for our organizations and especially for our participants,” said Rami Mayer, SEEC Executive Director. “At the same time as it demonstrates the quality of our training, it provides a significant added benefit to those who complete the program, which is based on one the most popular courses we offer. I too am excited to join with CCHL in this endeavour.”
This collaboration will also allow for both organizations to better address the constantly evolving needs of health leaders and align themselves with the LEADS in a Caring Environment framework. This framework is a foundation for Canadian health leadership development and defines the knowledge, skills and attitudes a leader must have to positively contribute to the Canadian health care system.
