EMHL ’19 & ’20 Return to Providence Doubling Cohort Brain Power

When is one plus one greater than two? When you bring the brain power of two independently tightly knit Brown University Executive Master in Healthcare Leadership cohorts together on campus to transform healthcare.

We are looking forward to the alchemy of this week’s residential session at Brown with the arrival of EMHL Cohort 2019 and 2020. While the bulk of these students’ time will be spent focusing on their respective curriculum, the cohorts will come together to share their work, hear leading expert guest speakers, and of course, enjoy some of Providence’s great restaurants and bars.


Critical Challenge Projects (CCPs)

We are especially looking forward to hearing the final presentations of their Critical Challenge Projects (CCPs) by each member of the EMHL Class of 2019. Reflecting Brown’s commitment to the rigorous application of theory to practice, this capstone requirement is one of the distinctive components of Brown University’s Executive Masters programs.  

For the past 16 months, working collaboratively with program peers, faculty, and industry advisers, students from the Class of 2019 leveraged knowledge and skills acquired throughout the program to address a real-time industry challenge.

A number of Cohort 19 students used their CCPs to develop business plans that tackle critical issues in today’s healthcare sector. We invite you to learn more about some of these projects in the stories below.

We all know that the healthcare sector is in crisis. Thank you EMHL 2019 and 2020 for joining us in this critical conversation to find a way forward to create a healthier and more just society.
