Congratulations to the members of the Executive Master in Healthcare Leadership (EMHL) 2018 Cohort who are coming to campus this week for their last EMHL residential session.
Because of its intensity, the program feels like it flies by. However, that fact does not diminish the depth of commitment required to complete this rigorous 16-month program and cultivate the leadership capacity to transform healthcare.
This week will culminate with presentations by students of their Critical Challenge Projects (CCPs) – individual research projects conducted throughout the program informed by the EMHL curriculum and cohort/faculty brain trust. This year, topics of these CCPs fall into the following categories:
- Training the Clinicians of the Future
- Innovations in Care Delivery Systems
- Advancing the Wide Deployment of New Care Models
- Succeeding under New Payment Models
Prior to these presentations, students will wrap up three courses:
- Quality Improvement and the Healthcare Learning Organization
- Navigating the Regulatory Maze
- Information-Powered Patient Care
Coursework will also focus on leadership capacity development in areas such as:
- Mentoring: To transform industry, leaders need to coach teams and employees to tackle new challenges. To build these skills EMHL 2018 students will listen, give feedback and mentor Brown Alpert Medical School students, and in turn, have their coaching techniques critiqued.
- Effective Communication: Just in time to present their CCPs, students will learn to power-up their audience-centric presentation skills.
- The Law: Stephen Weiner, who chairs Mintz Levin’s Health Law Practice, will speak to students about critical legal issues facing healthcare leaders.
Students will also get an in-depth look at HealthSourceRI and the impact of the CSR program on access to health insurance.
Thank you EMHL 2018 for enriching our conversation over the last 16 months to transform healthcare and create a healthier and more just society.
