Course Content

During the executive program for attaining excellence in the health care, a candidate will learn about the latest management tools and advanced concepts from the world's renowned faculty at the prestigious Columbia University. This multi modular program will be a blend of face-to-face classroom sessions, LIVE virtual conference, simulation exercises and a capstone project.


Healthcare system will be looked over across the world. This will help the participants in understanding global healthcare policies. The topics introduced in the Policy agenda will be covered, herein. How healthcare institutions are dealing with the new policy topics? What do we know about? What exactly is effective in healthcare and what is not? What are the implications of these policies around the world? These points will help us in understanding the present scenario of the healthcare and overcome the challenges lying within.


On the basis of given performance agenda or the evolving policy, what major strategic choices healthcare leader will need to make? How exactly they should proceed in decision-making? What kind of information do they need to consider these choices? We will use an empathetic approach to help these leaders in making wise choice. We also need to know about the other leaders who have faced these choices across the world. We will learn from them and use our learning to attract better strategic choices.

Module 3 : QUALITY

We will assess the increasing pressure on monitoring while tracking and evaluating the “quality” of health care performance across the world. On the basis of these global metrics, we will learn to monitor, track and evaluate this “quality”. Moreover, we will understand the entire scenario and focus on the essence and perspective of “quality”. The participant will be able to define quality in the most relatable and sensible manner.


Strategic choices and related aspects will be touched upon again in this module. Unlike before, the emphasis will be on organizational choices in this session of module 4. Understanding the organizational choices from the perspective of leaders in the healthcare system will be our chief aim.


You will get a clarity on the constantly evolving Policy agenda, the quality metrics which need to be tracked and organizational goals that need to be addressed. We will develop an understanding of the real-time challenges faced by managers while designing and implementing upon the detailed performance system.


The different types of leadership faced by Indian managers while working on the policy agenda, performance measurement and quality management will be addressed over here. We will take a look across the world for similar instances to know what works in the favor of leaders and what doesn’t.


It is Mailman’s unique software based exercise wherein, you will be applying all the lessons learnt in the classroom in the “real world” work environment. This realistic exercise gives you an exposure to understand the challenges and complexity of competitive and rapidly growing hospital environment.


In order for participants to gain leadership and organizational skills – as the pace of change in healthcare continues to accelerate, they must become adept at navigating the changing marketplace, regulatory, and clinical worlds. HealthSquare Simulation provides an opportunity to experience the challenges of executive leadership and strategic decision-making of a competitive multi-hospital marketplace – a realistic exercise that effectively simulates the complexity and intensity of the evolving hospital environment.


The HealthSquare Simulation, which involves developing and implementing overall institutional strategy, is offered by the Mailman School of Public Health. HealthSquare evaluations reflect the consensus that participants find simulations to be the most powerful learning activities they have experienced. Follow-up studies and surveys reinforce this, particularly with regard to improved strategic decision-making “on-the-job” and teamwork and leadership competencies.
