New partnership agreement serves as an avenue to promote excellence in the health leadership field for dentists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, dietitians, massage therapists and other allied health professionals.
The Schulich Executive Education Centre (Schulich ExecEd) has established a new strategic alliance with the Canadian College of Health Leaders (CCHL) to increase the leadership capabilities of dentists and allied health care professionals in Canada.
Through this agreement, participants in both the Schulich Mini-MBA: Dentist Business Leadership Program and the Schulich Mini-MBA: Clinical Professional Entrepreneurship 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.
CCHL noted these are the very first strategic alliance partnerships between the CCHL and dentist and clinician programs.
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.
