Preparing Leadership

Within the Preparing Leadership for Success portfolio, we build capacity among individuals and teams to solve complex problems with measurable impact. We engage mid- and senior- career professionals in online learning, in-person retreats, executive coaching, and mentored projects. We also prepare Yale students and scholars for success after graduation. For example:

We partner with the Foundation for Professional Development to deliver the Advanced Health Management Program (AHMP), providing health professionals with the management skills necessary to run efficient, effective health care facilities and to have them meet the needs of patients with HIV/AIDS. Program participants identify management challenges at their facilities and devise systematic solutions to address these problems, building competencies in the areas of financial, operations and project management, human resources, marketing, resource mobilization, and monitoring and evaluation. The year-long program reaches each of South Africa’s nine provinces and attracts professionals from Swaziland, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The Eastern Caribbean Health Outcomes Research Network (ECHORN) generates novel science, strengthens partnerships, and shapes evidence-based interventions to reduce the burden of noncommunicable diseases within Region II and the Caribbean. We provide strategic facilitation and leadership development support to members of ECHORN as they pursue their vision for regional collaboration to eliminate disparities in the burden of noncommunicable diseases.

The Expanded Program on Immunization Leadership and Management Program (EPI LAMP) was a 9-month executive-style certificate program that prepared national EPI teams to manage an increasingly complex EPI program, with attention to efficient operations, robust performance management and improvement, and effective political engagement and advocacy. The program was supported by Gavi and delivered in partnership with University of Yaoundé in Cameroon, University of Global Health Equity in Rwanda, and PATH. The program, delivered in both English and French, reached five cohorts, 27 countries, and 100 alumni for improved national immunization performance.

Strategic Leadership in Health and Social Care is our long-standing executive leadership program is delivered in partnership with the United Kingdom‘s National Health Service (NHS) and Health Education England. We prepare executives, commissioners, and others in leadership roles from the NHS, the social care sector, and the local government to navigate complex health and social care challenges within the UK. The 9-month program includes two modules, the first in the UK and the second on the Yale campus, and a mentored leadership project create a unique experience that equips delegates to transformational change. Since 2007, over 300 alumni have graduated from the program, many now serving in the highest offices across the NHS, the social care sector, and local governments.
