Thunderbird shall enhance innovation leadership skills of healthcare executives

The Edson College of Nursing and health Innovation is built on decades of successful executive education for the professionals of health care. It is now adding another worldwide education partner for Executive Fellowship in Innovation Health Leadership (EFIHL) called the Thunderbird School of Global Management.

The senior director for health innovation, Mr. Rick Hall of Edson College said that health care is a worldwide problem, so partnering up with Thunderbird is very exciting for them. He also said that the fellowship participants would benefit from the content of Thunderbird, and simultaneously the recruitment of international participants would assist the executives of health care in every sector.

The fellowship shall recruit healthcare executives from all over the world to partake in a one-year cohort which includes a three-day immersive experience in four different cities around the U.S. Throughout the year, the participants shall work on building a tool kit that empowers them to make innovative environments in their home organizations.

Industry partners of the program involve 2 leading membership organizations of the health care leadership that are the American Association for Physician Leadership and the American Organization of Nurse Leaders. The adding up of the Thunderbird School of Global Management has enhanced the curriculum of the fellowship by adding courses that were developed by world-class management faculty.

The Associate Dean of Innovation, Tom Hunsaker of Thunderbird School of Global Management said that only a few industries have greater stakes for getting the innovation right and this partnership would place the healthcare executives at the forefront of the leading-edge models and practices of innovation throughout the world.

Adding to content modules that are delivered in cohort immersions, the participants shall take courses related to systems thinking and some advanced concepts of the innovation from Edson’s Master of Healthcare Innovation.
