As part of a landmark $50 million gift from Michael G. DeGroote, the faculties of Business and Health Sciences present the Health Leadership Academy (HLA) at McMaster’s Ron Joyce Centre.

The HLA strives to have a transformative impact on global healthcare by nurturing a community of future leaders right here in Burlington and Hamilton, Ontario.

Thanks to our interdisciplinary and forward-thinking approaches to education, these leaders will be prepared to succeed in a number of fields – from informing government policy to developing and supporting health innovations.

In addition to offering world-class academic programs and informative public events, we encourage innovations with the potential to revolutionize healthcare as we know it.
