Welcome to the Health Leadership Academy

With the generous support of Michael G. DeGroote, McMaster University has launched a unique learning opportunity that is set to change the current and future heath care landscape in Canada.

The Academy will offer a new MD/MBA program, Certificate and Diploma.

This suite of programming will recognize the need for a new leadership paradigm in healthcare capable of navigating competing priorities in an era of cost constraints, rising demand for services, the rapid rise of digital innovation and changing stakeholder expectations.


“The Michael G. DeGroote Health Leadership Academy is raising the bar, in offering a forward-thinking and highly inter-disciplinary approach to education”

John Kelton, Dean and Vice President,

Del Harnish,
Interim co-director of the academy,

“A key goal of the Academy will be to help our emerging health care professionals develop the leadership capacity to identify, support and operationalize new ways of “thinking” and “doing” within a rapidly evolving health environment.”
