Emerging Health Leaders Education Grant

March 25, 2019

Triangle Strategies in collaboration with the Canadian College of Health Leaders (CCHL) and private sector health partners is offering emerging health leaders in Canada the opportunity to network with and learn from colleagues in Canada at its largest annual national gathering. An education grant is being offered through this competitive process. This grant was created by the generous support of the private sector healthcare partners who support the Triangle CEO Summit, an annual invitation only summit of thought leaders in healthcare which was recently held in Toronto. At that summit, in-lieu of speaker gifts and other conference giveaways, our supporters agreed to pool that money to offer a grant to an emerging health leader. Special thanks to Minogue Medical, HealthHub, Accenture, Aramark, Hill-Rom, AnalysisWorks and CCHL.

This is a chance for an emerging health leader in healthcare management to attend the annual National Health Leadership Conference (NHLC), taking place this year on June 10-11, 2019 in Toronto. The winner must prepare a paper (briefing of key learnings from the conference).

How to Apply

Using the LEADS framework as a guideline, candidates will prepare a 250 word submission, along with a 2 page resume, explaining why they are the best candidate to receive this grant and why attending the conference will enhance their career path. Candidates should also focus on the contributions they have made and plan to make to improve the delivery of care and service in Canada. Preference will be given to applicants that are members of the Canadian College of Health Leaders. Each application must be supported by the applicant’s mentor and shall include the names of two references who can speak to your candidacy. It is recommended that applicants review their nomination and be completed through discussion with their mentor, direct report and/or peer.

The Prize
