OVERVIEW

Global healthcare leaders must have expertise in leadership management, healthcare finance, and human resource management in order to maintain excellence in service and patient care. The China Leadership in Medicine Bridge with Harvard (CLIMB) Hospital Leadership and Management program was developed to ensure that emerging healthcare leaders in China have access to the world’s leading authorities in safety, quality, complex organizational management and health leadership.

CLIMB-LEAD is a one-year certificate program consisting of three residential workshops (in Shanghai, China and Boston, Massachusetts), pre-recorded lectures and interactive webinars focused on relevant and complementary topics. The program is designed for senior and executive level hospital, primary care, recuperative care, community and other healthcare facility administrators, chiefs of staff, hospital board members, chief nursing officers, department directors and other healthcare professionals with supervisory, management or executive level responsibilities.

The program will also be of benefit to clinicians who are transitioning or seeking to transition into administrative management or executive roles. Medical and non-medical personnel and staff who aspire to become directors, executives and administrators will also find tremendous value in the knowledge and skills taught.
