Essentials of Project Management in the Health Sector

July 10-13, 2018

Course Description

Organizations in the health sector routinely deploy projects, either to pilot an initiative or to support existing programs and policies. The central (but elusive?) aim of completing a project on target, on time and on budget rests primarily on having a competent manager equipped with the necessary knowledge, tools, and techniques for this purpose. This three-day short-course is appropriate for managers or associates handling government or private-sector led projects, as well as those engaged in research work.
