This program prepares leaders from various healthcare backgrounds to learn the skills necessary to manage in diverse environments within the Canadian healthcare setting. Firmly rooted in a Canadian and provincial healthcare context, with a strong focus on Indigenous perspectives, this program will prepare you to become a partner in care, lead interprofessional healthcare teams, and be adept in the ever-changing landscape of the Canadian healthcare system.

You will gain business and leadership fundamentals and foundational knowledge in finance, human resources, health equity, truth and reconciliation, and change management through a mix of online and intensive in-person learning. A work-integrated learning experience in form of a capstone project or placement will consolidate your new skills and knowledge.

This accelerated, hybrid program allows you to finish sooner and complete portions of the curriculum away from the college. The integrated learning option of either a capstone project or placement in the final semester is a unique feature of this program in Ontario. A strong emphasis on Indigenous truth and reconciliation as well as Indigenous community health care needs is interwoven in the program.

The broad spectrum of management skills specific to the Ontario health care sector makes this program an ideal choice for anyone looking to advance their career into a management position or accelerate in their current management role.

Fields of practice for graduates include clinics, hospitals or private facilities, nursing administration, infectious disease management, laboratory medicine administration, management in occupational therapy and physical therapy, dental health services management, homecare management, and first-aid management.

  • Critically analyze components of the Canadian and Ontario health care systems, including the social determinants of health and other key factors, to implement equitable and culturally safe service provision.
