A powerful new partnership at Penn teaches leaders in the medical world ways to better guide innovation in clinical teams and lead in the business of medicine.
Wharton Executive Education and Penn Medicine — world-renowned leaders in education and health care, respectively — have designed a unique pair of educational seminars for established or aspiring leaders in academic medical centers, and physicians, scientists and other executive leaders in the health care industry.
New Health Care Innovation Programs
“Health Care Innovation re-evaluates our concepts of design thinking, managing the process of innovation and creating a strategy for innovation for health care leaders going forward,” said Roy Rosin, Penn Medicine’s Chief Innovation Officer, and a seminar leader.
Both programs offer participants a strategic toolkit to strengthen their ability to lead effectively at a time when science, technology, and economics are rapidly reshaping the field.
The first of the two programs, Leadership in a New Era of Health Care, is designed to expand executive capacity to navigate more complex levels of leadership in the health care sector. The second, Health Care Innovation, offers a strategic, process-oriented approach to scientific, patient care and technological innovation in a new era of health care.
J. Larry Jameson, MD, Dean of Penn’s Perelman School of Medicine, and Executive Vice President of the Penn health system, appreciates the challenges of both leadership and innovation for the health care industry.
“These programs represent the best of Penn—Wharton and Penn Medicine,” Dr. Jameson said recently. “They engage the forces shaping the landscape of health care today and in the future—science, technology and executive leadership.”
Leadership in a New Era of Health Care
By the end of the event, Leadership in a New Era of Health Care attendees should be able to discuss emerging issues in health care; assess a leadership or structural problem in their group and understand managing conflict through negotiations, among other vital skills.
In today’s environment, medical leaders need strong negotiating skills, must be keen students of finance and business, and have the emotional intelligence to lead diverse teams.
“These are inestimable skills,” said Sigal Barsade, PhD, the Joseph Frank Bernstein Professor; Professor of Management, Wharton School.
Leadership in a New Era of Health Care will be held March 28 to 31.
Health Care Innovation
Created for clinicians, scientists, and other health care executive leaders, this seminar was designed to teach a strategic, highly effective process-oriented approach to new models of innovation with the object of shortening the distance between idea generation and implementation in health care organizations.
The Health Care Innovation seminar will take place April 25 to 28.
Wharton will host both four-day events at the Aresty Institute of Executive Education in Philadelphia.
Both four-day courses are eligible for CME: AMA PRA category 1 credits.
