Mentorship-based

learning model

The MS-HCL program will offer the most important determinant of long-term leadership success: mentoring. Mentors will guide and demonstrate through example how to understand one’s own skills, limitations, and ambitions while fulfilling the needs of the healthcare organization. Mentors will also be able to model how to maintain positive working relationships with all of the key stakeholders connected to that healthcare organization, including community members, employees, board members, and patients.
