Leadership in Medicine Program at Sunway University


Program Overview

Global health care leaders must have expertise in leadership, health care finance and human resource management in order to maintain excellence in service and patient care. With the support of Sunway University and Sunway Medical Centre, the Harvard Medical School Postgraduate Medical Education has developed the Leadership in Medicine Program at Sunway University to ensure that emerging health care leaders in Malaysia, Southeast Asia, Australia and the Pacific region have access to the world’s leading authorities in safety, quality, complex organizational management and health leadership.

Leadership in Medicine Program at Sunway University is a one-year certificate program consisting of three, four-day residential workshops (in Bandar Sunway, Selangor, Malaysia and Boston, Massachusetts, US), pre-recorded lectures and interactive webinars focused on relevant and complementary topics. The program is designed for senior and executive-level hospital, primary care, recuperative care, community and other health care facility administrators, chiefs of staff, hospital board members, chief nursing officers, department directors and other health care professionals with supervisory, management or executive-level responsibilities.

This program has three required workshops (dates below). The first workshop will be held in person at Sunway University (Malaysia), the second will be live online and the third will be in person at Harvard Medical School (USA). In between each workshop, participants should expect to spend 7-10 hours per week on other coursework, which can include live webinars, pre-recorded lectures, readings team work, or capstone related assignments. A schedule of live webinars will be released to participants at the launch of the learning website.

The Leadership in Medicine Program at Sunway University will also be of benefit to clinicians who are transitioning or seeking to transition into administrative management or executive roles. Medical and non-medical personnel and staff who aspire to become directors, executives and administrators will also find tremendous value in the knowledge and skills taught. Harvard Medical School looks forward to reviewing applications from all members of the health care community.
