Today clinical practice and medicine are rapidly changing due to increasing external pressures and the calls for efficiency savings.
The degree of dependency on organizational and operational features is constantly increasing:
clinical decisions face budget constraints and should try to maximize benefits ("value") within given resources. Therefore the integration between practice and research activities has gained a strategic role in daily clinical life to preserve professional excellence. Indeed, patient treatments rely on cost-effective and evidence-based clinical pathways, which are rooted in organizational structures, cultures and behaviours.
In this scenario, if physicians seek for being effective, efficient and influential leaders, they require new competencies and skills to play hybrid roles of doctor-managers in the future.
SDA Bocconi School of Management and Humanitas University are willing to take these challenges and engender outstanding leaders from the next generation of clinicians.
The Next Clinical Leaders Program is targeted at young talented clinicians at the beginning of their medical careers, close to achieving their specialization degree or who have just completed this degree.
The program is aimed at recruiting international professionals from diversified clinical backgrounds, with a specific intake from Europe.
The planned number of attendants is 25, to foster interactive dynamics with all faculty members and the opportunity to work in small groups.
The Program lasts one intensive week (16-23 June 2016) and aims to strengthen participants' outstanding leadership around four areas of competencies:
1. Understanding and managing the organization (16-17 June):
the "toolbox" of managerial competencies, skills and tools to get into hybrid roles as doctor-manager and strengthen the professional path toward future clinical-leader positions:
2. Understanding the healthcare system and policy (20 June):
the key drivers of healthcare system organization and the health policy making development from the international context to understand strategically the environment and exploit innovative opportunities:
COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
HEALTH POLICY MAKING AND REGULATION
3. Improving the clinical practice and research management (21-22 June):
the competencies and skills to manage clinical practice in the most effective ways and support a cross-fertilisation between clinical research and daily practice:
HEALTH CARE PERFORMANCE PLANNING, MANAGEMENT AND EVALUATION
CLINICAL DECISION-MAKING AND HEALTH TECHNOLOGIES ASSESSMENT (HTA) FOR DRUGS AND MEDICAL DEVICES
4. Developing personal skills and group leadership (23 June):
the competencies and tools to support personal skills and cope with stressors as well as to develop relational skills for collaborative work in team and/or for leading groups;
ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOUR AND DESIGN
LEADERSHIP AND CAREER PATH DEVELOPMENT IN HEALTHCARE ORGANIZATION
Classroom activities will be completed with site visits to healthcare organizations (3 site visits are planned from 5 to 7 p.m.).
The Program will be taught in English.
