January 30, 2023
The University of British Columbia’s Master of Health Leadership and Policy (MHLP) program has renewed its strategic alliance and LEADS certification with the Canadian College of Health Leaders (CCHL) to increase the leadership capabilities of health care managers in Canada.
Through this agreement, participants in the MHLP program can work towards obtaining their Certified Health Executive (CHE) designation, the only certification program for Canadian health leaders. This program offers individual leaders several benefits including support for lifelong learning in health services leadership; assistance with career advancement; peer recognition and serves as an essential career designation.
Brenda Lammi, Vice President, Leadership and Professional Development at CCHL, said: “We are excited about this renewed collaboration with UBC’s MHLP program who show their commitment to health leadership by committing to incorporating the LEADS framework into their curriculum and having the CHE as a preferred designation for their students.”
Dr. Cheryl Segaric, MHLP Program Director at UBC, said: “Through our partnership with CCHL, the CHE designation will position MHLP students as healthcare leaders at the intersection of education and the Canadian health system. The opportunity for MHLP students to integrate leadership development and industry best practices with a commitment to lifelong learning will add tremendous value to their future as health leaders.”
