International Healthcare Leadership is a program that teaches Chinese healthcare professionals how to incorporate healthcare public policy into healthcare reform and hospital management.
International Healthcare Leadership was founded at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. It is an independent non-profit organization developed to train Chinese healthcare professionals how to incorporate healthcare public policy into healthcare reform and hospital management.
Our goals are to:
- Provide tools and training specific to China in the areas of healthcare policy and hospital management.
- Provide forums to facilitate the discussion of incorporating public health policy and healthcare reform into practical hospital management.
- Encourage implementation of lessons learned through the development of a leadership network.
- Armed with the knowledge and tools necessary to address current systemic barriers to healthcare distribution, Chinese healthcare professionals will become change agents” in their communities, hospitals, businesses and organizations to provide better health services for underserved communities. Participants in IHL programs will be part of an IHL alumni network affecting the health of millions.
IHL Conference Series
The symposium, initiated by Columbia Professor David Roye, is designed to create a high-level dialogue among key healthcare leaders on the role of public health policy and healthcare management. The Center has successfully co-organized the IHL conference for two consecutive years. A substantial amount of effort went into event planning and promotion, conference material designing, on-site management, and fundraising assistance.
