In today’s constantly changing environment, we face continued challenges in health including pandemics such as the recent Ebola and Zika crises, chronic disease and antimicrobial resistance. These threats continually remind us of the crucial need for strong, dynamic and resilient leadership in global health. The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine is committed to addressing this need through the Executive Programme for Global Health Leadership.
This unique programme offers experienced health professionals the opportunity to develop their personal leadership skills as well as their global professional networks. Our dynamic workshops enhance the development of strong strategic leadership, negotiation and diplomacy skills, enabling you to have a global impact on health.
The programme is delivered over 10 months with three, one-week residential sections in London, Geneva, and Cape Town. During these weeks, you have the opportunity to engage with high-level leaders who speak candidly about their personal leadership journeys as well as to participate in workshops, simulations, and discussions.
During the inter-residential phases, when you return to your place of work, you will be supported through a bespoke programme of expert health mentorship and one-to-one executive coaching to maximize personal and professional success.
This unique 10-month course is tailored to experienced professionals in health leadership roles and is delivered in conjunction with three partners – Chatham House, The Graduate Institute Geneva and The University of Cape Town.
This programme aims to:
- Nurture leadership, negotiation and diplomacy skills
- Improve participant’s skills in formulating, articulating and making progress towards a viable strategic vision
- Enhance participants ability to work through different media platforms to communicate important health messages
- Enable participant’s to identify local and international partners
- Develop participant’s ability to scan the horizon to be able to recognise threats and seize important opportunities in order to successfully deliver large scale health projects.
- Develop a supportive and ambitious global network of like-minded leaders
The programme is delivered through three residential components, each lasting one week, at our partner institutions. These are combined with on-going executive coaching and mentoring to ensure participants reach their full leadership potential.
Participants are also invited to complete comprehensive leadership assessments and have full access to LSHTM resources including up to two MSc modules of their choice.
