The health industry is one of the fastest-growing and constantly evolving industries in the world. In Africa, the industry is rapidly changing and also faces many challenges across all the pillars of the health system.

Healthcare providers must, therefore, be able to understand and respond to new dynamics such as how health organizations are managed, advances in medical and information technology, health policy formulation and implementation, increased competition and growing demands for patient-centred care provision.

The Hospital Management Programme at The Institute of Healthcare Management – Strathmore Business School provides a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals to develop and enhance a set of skills to respond to these emerging dynamics in healthcare delivery.

For Who?

Doctors, Pharmacists, Nurses, Clinical Officers, Hospital Administrators (Finance Managers, Human Resource Managers, Planning Managers,  Departmental Heads and other administrators)
