Who should attend

The Hospital Management Simulation course is addressed to European and Asian hospital managers and healthcare providers.

About the course

As the pace of change in healthcare continues to accelerate, managers must be leaders, adept at navigating the changing marketplace, and legal/regulatory and clinical worlds. The objective of the Hospital Management Simulation is to provide an opportunity to experience the challenges of executive leadership and strategic decision-making of a competitive multi-hospital environment.

The simulation embedded in this executive program is a realistic exercise that effectively simulates the complexity and intensity of the evolving hospital environment.

Why a simulation?

Simulations are a well-tested and effective means of instruction that have been employed in management education within business schools and industry since the late 1950s. They range from simple exercises such as in-baskets to comprehensive exercises in functional areas including marketing, finance and operations to complex total organizational models such as the Health System Simulation.

How was this developed?

The Hospital Management Simulation can count on the long lasting experience of the Mailman School of Public Health that in 2009 developed the Health System Simulation, and is now partnering with SDA Bocconi to offer participants this training hands-on exercise.

What you'll be working on

Participants collaborate in this comprehensive strategic exercise as the executive leadership team of a hospital. As hospital executives, they must analyze their institution’s overall strategic direction and make all decisions central to its successful operation including mission/ vision, service line mix, capacity, investment in quality (professional/ clinical, systems, etc.), patient/payer mix, marketing, staffing, financial structure, and so on.
