Sponsorship

The Health Leadership Academy strives to make a transformational impact tied to new leadership thinking and action. As we grow our education, research and community engagement mandates forward, we endeavour to partner with corporate organizations, industry leaders, philanthropic, private or public institutions, as well as interested persons, to help us build a community of practice that will be leveraged to strengthen and develop a suite of programming focused on transformational leadership approaches targeting the next generation of health leaders.

Emerging Health Leaders


The Emerging Health Leaders (EHL) program is a two-week, intensive leadership development program open to both under graduate and graduate students. The EHL program focuses on key skills such as: personal leadership, change management , design thinking, and teamwork; all of which are essential to create the most proficient health leaders.
