HEC Paris in Qatar partners with Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar to drive excellence in healthcare provision, a strategic goal for the Qatar National Vision 2030.  

October 19, 2021: A new Executive Education program co-designed by top-ranked business school, HEC Paris in Qatar and Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar – both members of Qatar Foundation – will target healthcare professionals with the aim of driving systems-level management expertise and accelerating patient outcomes in the Kingdom and across the region. 

The Executive Certificate in Healthcare Management and Policy forms part of Qatar’s commitment to transform into a thriving, diversified knowledge-based economy. Specifically targeting healthcare management, the new program has been designed to optimize practitioner understanding of effective healthcare strategy, systems, operations, and innovation at an integrated, systems level. In essence, it delivers system-wide efficiencies and enhanced outcomes for patients in the region.

The program fully leverages the combined expertise of HEC Paris, which is ranked #1 in the Financial Times European Business Schools Ranking 2021, and Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar, one of the most respected and highly ranked medical research centers in the United States and the Gulf region. 

Healthcare leaders and decision-makers participating in the program will take two five-day modules beginning in January 2022

The first module is delivered in Doha and focuses on healthcare management, exploring critical leadership challenges in modern organizations and strategies for empowering employees. This session introduces foundational frameworks for interaction between healthcare system players, strategic decision making, operational process design as a strategy enabler and approaches to guide development of patient-centric services. It will also examine how digital transformation drives healthcare innovation and explore the role of entrepreneurial efforts. 

The second module is delivered in New York, where participants will focus on the function, components and indicators of healthcare policy and the basis and principles of health economics and incentives to pay for care delivery. It looks at healthcare financing, priorities and forecast expenditure as well as the measurement and evaluation of new treatments benefits. The future of healthcare, and the role of machine learning in optimizing diagnosis and treatment of diseases will also be explored. The session will also feature visits to major healthcare providers in New York.

The program concludes with an experiential learning project that sees participants work closely with a real-world healthcare organization to solve a specific managerial or policy challenge.

Dean of HEC Paris in Qatar, Dr. Pablo Martin de Holan, welcomes the new program saying: “The partnership with Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar brings together two members of the Qatar Foundation family and underlines our commitment to the country and the excellence in healthcare provision integral to the Qatar National Vision.”

“Healthcare spending frequently exceeds 10% of advanced economies’ GDPs yet does not necessarily translate into satisfactory levels of population health. These systems often struggle to ensure timely and affordable access to quality care. At the same time, increasing life expectancies and lifestyle changes alter the nature of services that people expect to navigate these challenges.”

Dean of Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar, Dr. Javaid Sheikh stresses the critical role of collaborative initiatives in tackling country-level challenges: “The new program harnesses the combined expertise of two of the world’s foremost education institutions to address the myriad complexities in providing effective and sustainable healthcare solutions. This is a significant step forward in providing Qatar’s healthcare executives with comprehensive and integrated knowledge that spans all aspects of customer-centric healthcare delivery and innovation, as well as the operational, management and policy dimensions of sustainable growth.”

“Our goal is to empower these leaders to guide their organizations more efficiently in order to successfully navigate new realities and emerging risks and opportunities.”
