Leadership and Management in Health
Learn how to lead organizations and manage people in this course on leadership and management. The course focuses on the practical leadership and management skills required for working in complex local, regional, national and global health environments. By the end of this course, you will develop a clear sense of the issues and challenges associated with leading organizations and managing people. Personal leadership development and practical management skills are both emphasized.
This online course has video lectures, readings, discussion forums, quizzes, and three assignments.
You can participate in this course as an independent participant or as part of a site with 5 or more people. Participating as a site group provides a forum for discussing course concepts and applying them to local context and customs. If you are participating independently, the online discussion boards provide a forum for these types of discussion.
The course is taught in English. Participants should be comfortable with written and spoken English.
The course is most useful for health care professionals and public health specialists who have some experience in management and who wish to enhance their skills working with people and other organizational resources. Most case studies, readings, and assignments assume an existing knowledge of the health care system, labor law, and funding landscape in your country. Participants will get the most out of this course if they can apply the concepts and strategies immediately to a work setting, including being in a position to lead meetings, facilitating team development, communicating on behalf of the organization, managing conflicts, analyzing and monitoring management data, supervising and delegating work, and managing some aspects of complex project implementation. The course is less well suited to individuals in entry-level positions in the workforce.
If part of a site group, your site coordinator will manage your group's enrollment fee. You may be asked to contribute towards this site fee.
If an independent participant, you will be invoiced based on details and preferences you note in your application. OECD/LMIC rates are based on your current location. Invoices are sent soon after the application period is over.
|Site Group Enrollment||Shipped Certificate (to site coordinator)|
|OECD Site Groups||5-15 people: $199 USD per person; 16-60 people: $3000 USD|
|LMIC Site Groups||5-60 people: $999 USD|
For site groups made up of participants from a high-income country (OECD), the fee is determined by how many people are in your group. For groups of 16-60 people, the fee is $3000 USD. However, for smaller groups (OECD), we offer a discounted rate of $199 USD per person.
For site groups made up of participants from a low-middle income country (LMIC) we further discount the site rate down to $999 USD for groups of at least 5 people (with a cap of 60 people for this course).
For site groups that may have a mix of both LMIC and OECD participants, the fee is based on the LMIC rate (of $999 USD) plus $199 USD per OECD participant. However, if it is more economical, a flat rate of $3000 USD is also an option. Please inquire with us if you have questions about the fees at your site.
