The application for the Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) Course on Comparative Health Systems is currently closed. Sorry for any inconveniences.
This COIL course will focus on developing a deeper understanding of health systems as they are across the globe with a focus on the US and Kenyan Health systems, and the (possible) re-adaptation of the same considering the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Students will be expected to work together in cross-cultural teams to solve a problem in a specific disease state or health system issue that affects both countries.
The course will be structured to achieve 4 objectives:
This programme is targeted towards UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School students and SBS students currently enrolled for the MBA Healthcare Management programme at No cost.
Each class will consist of 4 elements:
Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) is an approach that brings students and professors together across cultures to learn, discuss and collaborate as part of their class.
Professors partner to design the experience and students partner to complete the activities designed. COIL becomes part of the class, enabling all students to have significant intercultural experiences within their course of study.
The programme is delivered by a high-powered faculty team from both Strathmore University Business School (SBS) and UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School (UNC).
Through the integrated expertise, participants gain a comprehensive view of healthcare systems strengthening especially during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The distinct needs of healthcare systems in both Kenya and the USA will also be considered.
The face of healthcare is dynamic and more complex than ever, with technological innovations, new treatments, new laws & regulations, and new types of healthcare service delivery models.
In addition to negotiating the day-to-day demands of a busy and complex organisation, healthcare delivery leaders need to evaluate and understand the impact of different healthcare delivery models and major service delivery programmes in specific disease areas.
We have developed over time of programmes to help healthcare leaders and managers cope with this ever-changing landscape.
