CCHL and York University’s Schulich Executive Education Centre Agree to the First Ever CHE Strategic Alliance for Clinical Professional and Dentist Programs

September 24, 2021

New partnership agreement serves as an avenue to promote excellence in the health leadership field for dentists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, dieticians, massage therapists, and other allied health professionals.

Toronto/Ottawa –Schulich School of Business Executive Education Centre has established two new strategic alliances with the Canadian College of Health Leaders (CCHL) to increase the leadership capabilities of health care managers in Canada.

Through this agreement, participants in the Schulich Clinical Professional and Dentist Business Leadership Mini-MBA Programs will work towards obtaining their Certified Health Executive (CHE) designation, the only certification program for all Canadian health leaders. This program offers individual leaders several benefits including support for lifelong learning in health services leadership; assistance with career advancement; peer recognition and also serves as an essential career designation.

Brenda Lammi, Vice President, Leadership and Professional Development at the CCHL, said: “We are excited about this collaboration with York University’s Schulich Executive Education Centre, who show their commitment to health leadership by becoming LEADS certified and to committing to have the CHE as a preferred designation for their students.”

This collaboration will also allow for both organizations to better address the constantly evolving needs of health leaders and align themselves with the LEADS in a Caring Environment framework. This framework is a foundation for Canadian health leadership development and defines the knowledge, skills and attitudes a leader must have to positively contribute to the Canadian health care system.
