About the Institute of Healthcare Management

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 programmes to help healthcare leaders and managers cope with this ever-changing landscape.
