Fellowship in Health System Improvement

Lead the change

With Canada's health system performance trailing many other countries, there is now a critical need for leaders who bring about transformative change.

Are you ready to take on the challenge?

Do you want to:

  • increase your knowledge of health and health system performance.
  • enhance your personal and organizational leadership skills.
  • build your understanding of international health systems.
  • develop the ability to lead transformative change.

If these things appeal to you, and if you are a current leader or senior manager in a health system, then our Fellowship in Health System Improvement may be for you.

Under the current pandemic circumstances, the start of the next program has been delayed until Spring 2021. As such, applications will not be accepted until Fall 2020. 




Who should attend

The program is designed for people with significant health system experience who are eager to enhance their capacity to lead transformative change. Enrolment will be limited to 24 students.


"The Fellowship program provides a unique opportunity to integrate leadership development and health system improvement knowledge from international and Canadian experience and thereby enhance the ability of current and future leaders to lead transformative change."

Milton Sussman
Deputy Minister, Alberta Health

"The Fellowship in Health System Improvement helps develop thinkers, change makers and leaders. Our participants return more informed, engaged and critical in their analysis of health system issues and ideas. There is also long-term value in the network our fellows build from across the country."

Deputy Minister, Nova Scotia
