UMIO and the European Heart Academy (EHA) have joined forces in developing a training programme for future leaders in cardiovascular medicine. The programme will start in April 2022.
Certificate of Advanced Studies in Cardiovascular Management and Leadership
The Certificate of Advanced Studies in Cardiovascular Management and Leadership (CAS-Leadership) will provide healthcare practitioners with the skills required to lead and manage the healthcare systems of the future. In contrast to the many generic leadership courses on offer across Europe, CAS-Leadership combines the core principles of effective leadership with instruction in essential modern skills such as hospital management, digital transformation, and dealing with complex systems. This leadership course is a transversal programme tailor-made for mid-career healthcare professionals with an interest in cardiology who want to become managers and leaders with broad societal and economic perspectives.
This programme is organised in partnership with the European Heart Academy; an organisation that trains the future leaders in cardiovascular medicine. In collaboration with selected excellent universities, the academy provides the ultimate cardiovascular degrees.
Complexity in healthcare
The healthcare sector is complex in the sense that many different stakeholders interact in a rapidly changing context. For example, patients are more and more empowered through easier access to information on health, doctors and nurses need responses to advances in new technologies that might fundamentally change how they prevent, diagnose and cure diseases, insurance companies influence procedures through how they finance and regulatory bodies shape what is possible and what is not. To be a leader in this context requires the ability to recognise diverse stakeholders, spot emerging new realities and navigate the often paradoxical impact these developments have on the organisation. This programme equips participants with exactly that.
It is unique because it not only provides participants with different evidence-based perspectives on management and leadership in this context but also helps participants translate these to their own personal leader role. In that way, the knowledge and experience gained becomes immediately actionable in their own work context.”Prof. dr. Mariëlle Heijltjes – Executive Director UMIO & Professor of Managerial Behaviour
