Healthcare Leadership School 

The Healthcare Leadership School is a week where medical students, young doctors and social entrepreneurs are offered a platform for personal development. We believe that sustainable change can only be achieved when it comes from inside out, and when people in healthcare truly embody the change that we wish to see.

Participants from all over the world come together, share stories, share their passion and dreams, attend interactive peer-education sessions and learn how to create sustainable change. The summerschool offers them tools and inspiration to be pro- active, conscious and compassionate as a (future) healthcare worker. In March 2015, the third edition of the Healthcare Leadership Summerschool took place in South- Africa. In October 2015, the fourth edition of the Healthcare Leadership School took place in Portugal.

Our next edition will take place in Kentucky, the United States. More information will follow soon.
