node lead section

In today’s constantly changing environment, we face continued challenges in health including pandemics such as the recent Ebola and Zika crises, chronic disease and antimicrobial resistance.

These threats continually remind us of the crucial need for strong, dynamic and resilient leadership in global health.

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine is committed to addressing this need through the Executive Programme for Global Health Leadership.

This unique 10-month programme offers experienced health professionals the opportunity to develop their personal leadership skills and professional networks.

Their dynamic workshops enhance the development of strong strategic leadership, negotiation and diplomatic skills, successfully enabling Fellows’ (participants) to have a global impact on health.

This innovative programme combines three one-week residential phases held with high-profile partner organisations in London, Geneva and Cape Town with inter-residential components providing bespoke health-topic mentorship from expert faculty members and Executive Coaching to maximise professional and personal success.

Fellows will also be able to access LSHTM distance learning modules during inter-residential phases to sharpen-up knowledge and expertise in self-selected health topics.

During the residential phases, in addition to interactive workshops, Fellows will have exceptional access to high-level health leaders who will share their unique experiences and insights, speaking candidly about the challenges they faced as well as reflection on what they might have tackled differently.

Residential phases will each have a distinct focus

  • London Residential Week: Ensuring health issues are high on national political agendas
  • Geneva Residential Week: Engaging world-players and operating on a global stage
  • Cape Town Residential Week: Successful implementation and delivery through systems leadership
