As the pace of change in healthcare continues to accelerate, managers must be leaders, adept at navigating navigating this dynamic environment, and the legal/regulatory and clinical worlds. The core objective of the Hospital Management Simulation is to provide a unique opportunity to experience the pressing challenges of executive leadership and strategic decision-making of a competitive multi-hospital environment.
THE SIMULATION is a realistic exercise that effectively simulates the complexity and intensity of the evolving healthcare environment especially during times of crisis.
The HOSPITAL MANAGEMENT: THE SIMULATION & THE PANDEMIC is a realistic exercise that effectively simulates the complexity and intensity of the evolving healthcare environment.
4 days online program (28 hours live streaming)
Simulations are a well-tested and effective means of instruction that have been employed in management education within business schools and industry since the late 1950s. They range from simple exercises such as in-baskets to comprehensive exercises in functional areas including marketing, finance and operations to complex total organizational models such as the Health System Simulation.
The HOSPITAL MANAGEMENT: THE SIMULATION & THE PANDEMIC course benefits from the long standing experience of the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health which developed the Health System Simulation and is now partnering with SDA Bocconi to offer the simulation embedded into the executive education program.
Participants collaborate in this comprehensive strategic exercise as the executive leadership team of a hospital. As hospital executives, they must analyze their institution’s overall strategic direction and make all decisions central to its successful operation including mission/ vision, service line mix, capacity, investment in quality (professional/ clinical, systems, etc.), patient/payer mix, marketing, staffing, financial structure, and so on.
The Hospital Management Simulation course is addressed to European and Asian hospital managers and healthcare providers.
What previous participants say
“This simulation training exercise is as close to real life as I’ve ever seen. It replicates the implications and complexities associated with managing a complex hospital environment. In addition to the intricate lessons of decision-making and resource allocation, participants are enveloped into the competitiveness and team interaction aspects of human behavior that are also essential elements of success this ever changing and dynamic system of healthcare delivery”.
“I feel confident that the Simulation will further strengthen our leadership team’s ability to respond to the challenges of a rapidly evolving healthcare market.”
“The complex decision making was probably the best part of the simulation for me. In the past I have engaged in problem solving by looking at each issue in isolation instead of thinking about factor analysis—analyzing how each decision will impact all the other areas of operation.’’
