Whether you aspire to move up the career ladder; aspire to increase your influence in your current position; or aspire to understand and recognise your leadership potential this program will prepare you to embrace and succeed in the challenges that may face you.

We use a developmental framework tailored for women in the digital health ecosystem. You will explore, develop and distinguish the technical competencies and ethical values that comprise your leadership brand.

Our curriculum follows three complementary pillars of leadership:

  • Leading People – you will learn skills to develop create teams and cultivate culture champions and focus on strategic leadership, decision making and delegation . Outcome – Clear vision of how to develop the next generation of digital health leaders
